    Wink intergenic ID

    Friends,
    could someone please ID this new orchid for me? It is tagged only as 'intergenic' and that could mean almost anything. Any info on culture, etc would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    It looks a lot like Miltassia Shelob

    Thanks for the replies! Since I know next to nothing about intergenics (?) any info, even 'non-info' gets me just a little farther from ignorance. Keep it comin'!

    Definitely a Miltassia, though I'm not sure on the exact hybrid.

    Could very well be Miltassia Shelob (Mtssa Omec x Brassia Edvah Loo). Miltassia = Miltonia x Brassia.

    Looks very much like my Shelob. I find it to be an easy grower. I grow mine under intermediate conditions temp and light wise.

    Talking

    Yes, a miltassia. Grow as an oncidium:

    Light
    Requirements:

    1500 – 2000
    footcandles

    A bright kitchen window with no direct sun is perfect for these medium-light loving plants.
    Temperature:

    70 – 90 degrees
    F. daytime, 60 – 65 degrees F. night.
    Humidity:

    40 – 65 % relative humidity is ideal.

    Cheers,
    BD
