I bought this from Tesco it just said Speciality orchid but no more info. The flowers have dropped now. They add smelt very nice. The soil is getting a bit of white mould on top. I need to identify it properly to make sure that I look after it correctly. Any help would be appreciated. [img][/

Hi it's an oncidenae intergeneric hybrid but could be of any parentage. Just keep it damp not standing in water.Water over the sink then allow to fully drain before putting back in its growing area.Allow to nearly dry,but so that its still slightly damp inside between watering. Feed at half recommended strength every third watering.The mould on the compost is due to lack of ventilation so open the window in favourable conditions to allow fresh air to the plant but not a cold draught.Good light but not strong sunshine
