Live Oncidium orchid plant is currently spiking to flowering!
The LEGENDARY Oncidium Sharry Baby orchid has a reputation like no other. The ‘Sweet Fragrance’ cultivar has – you guessed it – a super sweet chocolaty fragrance! Many popular fragrant varieties have been bred from this one – including our popular Aka Baby ‘Raspberry Chocolate’. Spikes can reach up to 3 feet tall – flowers are abundant and stunning. This one is a must-have for any collector.
Live orchid plant comes in a 4″ nursery pot with the perfect potting media to keep your new friend happy and healthy. Also available in decorative biodegradable organic polymer pots.
Care is very easy – this plant will put out new spikes year after year with minimal attention! This orchid prefers bright indirect light, regular fertilization (“weakly, weekly”), and occasional misting. Choose an eastern exposure (or south/west with a dappled curtain) for the most vigorous growth!
This orchid breed is native to tropical climates and does best around 65 to 80 degrees. Weatherized shipping is included with all our plants whenever required. We delicately wrap our live plants in layers of sheet foam, and include a 72+ hour heat pack when temperatures are low. However, we make no guarantees that our tropical plants will survive extreme freezing temperatures. It’s the duty of the buyer to open packages immediately upon arrival. Our commitment to excellence means we ship exclusively USPS Priority 1-3 day, as all live plants should be.
