Oncidium stacyi is an unusual and uncommon now Trichocentrum species that thrives in the high canopy of tropical rainforests in Bolivia and Peru. It is a slow-growing orchid, native to Bolivia, and relatively rare in the orchid world. When it blooms, this exceptional orchid displays a dazzling array of large flowers speckled in mahogany and yellow, which remain vibrant for several weeks.

The roots of Oncidium stacyi are covered in abundant hairs, indicating its preference for a moist environment. To ensure its well-being, water the plant when the moss starts to dry out or approaches dryness.

This species is rarely available for sale due to its pendant growing terete foliage and relatively large blooms. Many growers face difficulties in cultivating it, but we have found that it thrives best when mounted, although successful growth in baskets is also possible.

It's important to handle the root system with care, as rough handling can negatively impact the plant. The bright white and fuzzy roots add to the overall beauty of this remarkable orchid.

This rare bolivian species produces dramatic arching inflorescences of rust orange flowers. The yellow orange lip has crimson crests. Long, pendent terete foliage. Trichocentrum stacyi typically blooms during spring and summer.

Watering: Water thoroughly when the potting mix is almost dry. Allow for good drainage and avoid waterlogging the roots.
