The Oncidium Species and their Sections
The following is a list of the species in the oncidium genus. The information comes from Garay and Stacy's important work (Garay, L.A. and Stacy, J.E., 1974 'Synopsis of The Genus Oncidium' Bradea 1:40, 25 September, 1974) where they completed a study of the genus. Their work, published in the relatively unknown periodical Bradea is not readily available to growers and those interested in this genus. The following list is extracted with full acknlwledgemlent of the source of their species list together with the designated sections. Some more recent work on individual sections has been completed by other workers, and hopefully this work will continue, which will supplement this information. The data is, however, useful in grouping the plants into workable sections. Most of the plants in each sectiona have similar natural habitats and consequently similar cultural requirements. The pages on this site for each section attempt to identilfy the appropriate culture to assist those cultivating the plants under diverse conditions.
Remember, growing orchids is all
about enjoying your plants
Good luck and good growing.
