This admirable collector was hunting for oncidium splendidum, a stately flower not very uncommon once, but long extinct in Europe.
But as for oncidium splendidum he had not so much as heard of it.
oncidium splendidum took its place for a while among the lost orchids.
Except in oncidium, there is no longer a veliger stage in development.
He was looking for orchids, however, and who could have expected to find an oncidium buried among herbage in the open ground?
So that in this orchid the injurious action of the plant's own pollen is more rapid than with oncidium flexuosum.
An oncidium which always commands attention from the public and grateful regard from the devotee is Onc.
It belongs to the stately section of which oncidium macranthum is the common type.
But on the table before me now stands a wreath of oncidium crispum which I cannot pass by.
Scores of oncidium splendidum starred the tall grass all around!
