Introducing the Oncidium Twinkle 'Fantasy' – a mesmerizing orchid variety that will enchant any orchid enthusiast with its charming features.

Cultivating Tips:

1. Potting Mix: Optimal growth for the Oncidium Twinkle 'Fantasy' is achieved with a fine bark or long fiber sphagnum potting mix. Repotting is recommended every two years, preferably in the spring, to provide the orchid with fresh nutrients and space for continued flourishing.

2. Light: Position your orchid in bright, indirect to medium light conditions. For the most spectacular bloom display, shield the plant from the direct sun, especially favoring South or West-facing locations. While it can tolerate North or East-facing positions, protecting the leaves from prolonged direct sun exposure is crucial.

3. Watering: Maintain a consistent watering schedule, especially during the hotter months when the potting media becomes dry. Avoid letting the orchid stay dry for extended periods to prevent issues such as bud blast, pseudobulbs shriveling, and leaves becoming crisp and accordion-like. Adjust the frequency of watering during colder months.

4. Temperature: The Oncidium Twinkle 'Fantasy' thrives in intermediate temperatures, with a minimum night temperature of 55°F and a maximum day temperature of 85°F. Providing this temperature range ensures the orchid's overall health and well-being.

5. Humidity: While it prefers humidity levels between 30-60%, the Oncidium Twinkle 'Fantasy' is surprisingly tolerant of lower humidity conditions, making it a versatile choice for various climates.

6. Fertilizing: Feed your orchid generously during the active growing seasons of Spring to Fall. Utilize a 1/4 strength urea-free fertilizer with every watering, especially as new roots and leaves emerge. To prevent mineral buildup, flush the pot with water monthly. Adjust the fertilizer strength to 1/4 or 1/8 during Winter, either with every other watering or on a monthly basis.

This is a blooming size in a 2" pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Bring the enchanting world of orchids into your home with the captivating Oncidium Twinkle 'Fantasy.' With its compact size, fragrant blossoms, and straightforward care requirements, this orchid is a perfect choice for both novice and seasoned orchid enthusiasts alike.
