Oncidium onustum grows from Mexico to Ecuador and Peru. It is warm to hot growing and needs a complete dry winter rest from after blooming until new growth starts. The flowers are very long lasting. The genus Oncidium (Onc) contains 600 species from throughout Central America and South America. They grow in a wide variety of environments. If you know a little about where the species grows, they do very well in cultivation.
