Onc. cebolleta

One of the oldest known oncidium species, introduced into European cultivation in 1824. Its terete (pencil-like) leaves are a result of evolution from leaving in hot, dry conditions. The reduced surface area of the leaves allow less water to be lost in transpiration, just like cacti. These plants are ideal for growing in dry areas with lots of sun. Flowers are abundant in a mature plant, and will not disappoint!

As far as I know, this is the only one Oncidium orchid with pencile shape. I have DeFlask 2 flasks last year. And the successful rate was quite high. The plants have grown about 200mm in height, and one plant is mature. They are easy to grow.

We encourage buyers to take advantage of our current promotion to save postage costs:


If you buy 5 at a time:

5 x $9.9 = $49.5 + $10.55 postage = $60.05

You receive 7 seedlings in total.


If you buy one each time:

$9.9 + $10.55 = $20.45

And you buy 7 times:  

$20.45 x 7 =$143.15

You also receive 7 seedlings in total

 In other words, you are paying nearly 2.5 times of the money to buy one each time.

  Package: minimum order 10-20 plants; Surcharge $10 for each consignment for quarantine cleaning and re-potting with new sphagnum and clear pots.
