    Cooooolll. What's considered "huge" for an onc? I've got five of the thingies where the leaves are coming out. What are they called anyway?

    It's in a 6" pot and about a foot tall. Aw, better yet, here are two pics. Since I don't have access to my server you'll have to paste in the links to view it at my geocities account.

    I'll take your advice whether or not to snip it, depending on if you think the plant can handle it or not. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The things that the leaves originate from are called pseudobulbs.

    Wickedthistle I would cut off the parts that have dried up. It might make a few side branches from the healthy part if it is not broken way down at the base. Don't be surprised though if it only makes a few flowers if that. Oncidium are not big rebloomers off old inflorescence. Your next big show will come when the newest growth starts maturing and makes a new inflorescence.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Ah, pseudobulbs. A nice, intuitive name [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Thanks Tony! It's broken right about where the top of the stake is (and was about 3 times above that but I already cut those off). Considering some of the leaves are also broken it's a very happy plant, I'll snippy snip and be impatiently waiting for the next show!

    Yes definitely remove the spike and let the plant grow on.
    As Tony stated previously Onc. are not generaly big rebloomers.
    I would say youd be wasting time trying to get it to rebloom, especially when you consider what youll get next season.
    IMO
