Tolumnia Genting Sunshine

Tolumnia is a genus of miniature orchids native to the islands in the Caribbean Sea. They produce long, wiry stems with very colorful flowers that are wonderfully showy. Guido Braem separated these orchids from the mega-genus Oncidium in 1986 creating the genus Tolumnia. They grow in my greenhouse under high light and warm temperatures with regular fertilizer.
