Anyone help with ID on this Oncidium

Pretty Flamingo.jpg
Bought at an Orchid Show, I think had the wrong ID tag. Pretty Flamingo 'Freezia'. ....Flamingo would mean 'pink'. Anyone have an idea what this is?

Well Brisbanite, hmmmm. You're certainly correct that your orchid is not Pretty Flamingo 'Freezia' but not because it's not pink, it's because Pretty Flamingo is a Cymbidium, not an Oncidium.

There are 4 different Oncidiums with the word "Flamingo" in the name. The one closest to your name is Oncidium Pacific Flamingo.

But in this case I think it is unlikely that your orchid is Oncidium Pacific Flamingo. Cymbidiums are BIG here in Australia and I think your plant just got stuck with a cymbidium tag. This makes your orchid a lovely oncidium noid. You won't be able to get a positive ID on it but at least you know it is an oncidium so you can sort out how to take care of it.

Thanks Kevin for the info. I gathered this was so. Just my luck to buy an orchid with an incorrect name tag.
