Tolumnia Memoria Ralph Yagi 'Joe' AM/AOS

It's a shame that Tolumnia hybrids (aka equitant oncidiums) are not more widely grown, as they possess many fine qualities. Small plants with fan-shaped leaves produce large, colorful flowers on tall inflorescences that usually branch to produce additional flowers. Once their culture is mastered, it is easy to become a devotee. These twig epiphytes from the Caribbean do best with regular watering but must dry out quickly. Adjusting potting to accommodate this is the basis for successful culture. We have had success using small clay pots with a few chunks of lump charcoal.
