    Oncidiums originate from the high Andes and are commonly known as tiger orchids. 'Münsterland Stern’ has huge sprays of bright yellow flowers with wonderfully colourful tiger-like stripes that bloom at various times of year but mainly between autumn and winter.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery alternative), but we have a wide and wonderful range on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water weekly by sitting the pot in a tray of water (or the kitchen sink) for 15 minutes so it can soak up as much as it likes, then leave it to drain throughly before moving it back into position. Keep it in a bright spot with protection from direct sunshine during spring and summer, and don't worry if the roots grow outside the pot. In their native environment, they grow in the crooks of branches, and use these aerial roots to absorb water from the air. They do not mind being overcrowded in their pots, so you only need to repot them when the growth starts to suffer.
  • Humans: Skin allergen
