    Nice Miltonia blooms! I only grow one of these because of their temp requirements. Sorry that I cannot help with the identification.

    Cheers,

    It's one the Miltonopsis hybrids. Really won't be able to get a specific name without knowing the parents. You could always contact the grower.

    Beautiful orchid! I think it is Miltonia Herralexandre. I just googled it and a photo of Miltonia Herralexandre 'Golden Gate' came up that looks very much like yours. Hope that helps.

    Thank you all for your help.

    Some weeks ago I find by chance a picture of a Miltoniopsis Herralexandre. That made me doubt if it's a Miltonia or a Miltoniopsis.

    ang709, I have a question: Miltonia Herralexandre or Miltoniopsis Herralexandre? Anyway, my orchid looks very much like it.

    I haven't noticed any fragance. Unfortunately it's not in bloom now, I'll have to check next time.

    I have seen it listed both ways on the internet. However, when I checked the official registry of the name, it said Miltonia Heralexandre.

    It was likely registered as Miltonia originally, however, the cooler growing "pansy" type of Miltonia (this is one of those) was later changed to Miltoniopsis. The name Miltonia now involves the warmer growing hybrids that have Miltonia spectabilis in the background.
