    Default Mystery oncidium-type at the botanical garden

    Went to the Erie County Botanical Garden today and their orchid room had a couple of this great oncidium-type in bloom:



    The tags on both plants had been written in script, with a pencil, and were just about faded to nothing. Anyone want to take a guess at what it is? More specifically than, "awesome," I mean. I'd love to try to get one.

    It's a Miltonia (not Miltoniopsis), warm-growing, Brazilian in origin. Miltoniopsis are intermediate/cool growing (pansy orchids), often still called Miltonia.

    This is actually a Miltonia, it is in the oncidium family. Definitely Milt. clowesii somewhere. Try Milt. Goodale Noir (flavescens x clowesii). Get two, one for you and one for me, jejeje!
