    Default Growing MILTASSIA. How easy are they?

    Hi -
    I am new to growing these Oncidium Intergenerics, but would enjoy hearing how others have done with growing Miltassia. I've read lots of feedback stating they are reliable bloomers, easy to grow and bloom and some even bloom more than once per year. Is anyone growing these ?

    Hi Alan, I have one 'The Diplomat' and it has bloomed for me twice in the 18 months I have owned it. It gets good indirect light and intermediate temperatures. I find it quite easy, give it a go !

    I have a Miltassia, it was the first oncidium type I really had success with. They are very forgiving and bloom regularly. Everyone should have at least one of these....

    these guys come from the same 'grouping' of plants as oncidiums, and these guys grow like weeds... take my word for it, u'll be dividing and giving them to your friends before you know it, haahaa!!
