These plants prefer very bright places, but we should avoid direct sunrays, especially during the hottest days of the year. Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.Let's avoid exposing the The Oncidium tigrinum to temperatures below 15°C. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind.

Feed Oncidium tigrinum
Let’s avoid fertilizing our orchids during flowering; during the spring let’s act every 20-25 days, using a specific fertilizer, avoiding to leave fertilizing solutions in direct contact with the roots for too long.

Care Oncidium tigrinum
Growing the stems and branches tend to develop downwards. These plants are perennial herbs. This plant in the winter assumes a yellow colouring; it is small in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Irrigation Oncidium tigrinumTenere Umido
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 1-2 weeks can be enough using 1-2 glasses of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. Orchids in general favour a pretty moist soil; to water correctly it is advisable to water these plants by immersion, therefore soaking the containers in water up to the edge; when the water has reached the top part of the substratum we can take out the vases and let the excess water drain well.

Adversity Oncidium tigrinum
A treatment based on mineral oil or insecticide should be applied only in cases of infesting by parasites, paying attention not to vaporize the flowers.

Substrate Oncidium tigrinum
They need an averagely drained cultivation substratum.
