Psychopsis

About: Psychopsis are an intermediate level Onc. hybrid group which prefers warm, humid conditions and likes to be potted in coarser bark than many other Oncidium hybrids to prevent root rot. They are sequential bloomers meaning they will re-bloom many times from the same flower spike, sometimes for several years. Often they stay in bloom or spike for many months. 

Potting mix: Coarse orchid bark mix, repot infrequently in Spring and not while in bloom/spike

Light: Low-medium light

Water: Water regularly when media is dry, decrease in cold months

Temp: Intermediate-warm (60F min night, 90F max day)

Humidity: 70-85%, mist aerial roots often

Fertilizing: 1/2 strength urea-free balanced fertilizer every 3rd-4th watering. Decrease to monthly or less in winter

**Some species require unique conditions, consult species reference for more exact info (aos.org recommended).
