Light Oncidium tigrinumPosizione mezza ombra
These plants prefer very bright places, but we should avoid direct sunrays, especially during the hottest days of the year. Avoid excessively sunny places; we suggest to put the the in a partially shady spot.These plants are grown in apartment or in a temperated green house; they can be brought outdoors when the minimum temperatures are above 15° C.

Fertilize 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.

Cultivation 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.

Water Oncidium tigrinumTenere Umido
Water regularly, every 1-2 weeks , wetting the soil deeply with about 1-2 glasses of water ,but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between one watering and another; avoid leaving stagnant water. 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.

Pests 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.

Mold Oncidium tigrinum
They need an averagely drained cultivation substratum.
