    I agree with Bruce.
    I would also suggest using much smaller pot. This one is too huge; easy to get rot with proper watering.

    I would say that the Miltonia is grossly over potted. A 75mm (3inch) pot would be far better.Keep the humidity high otherwise the loverly big lips will not fully open out. grow these under spring conditions all year round

    Orchid-man, what do you mean by "spring conditions"? I started collecting these too and I love culture tips.

    Definitely Miltoniopsis. But Miltoniopsis was very popular before true Miltonias were as commonly grown, and were called Miltonia for many years. It takes about 50 years for orchid growers to get over name changes, if they live that long.

    Thanks, for the information. I've fallen hard for these and I'm bound and determined to grow and bloom them. Kharma, good luck with yours. It's beautiful.

    I love these and wish I had the patience to grow indoors. These are just so gorgeous!

    I myself would not mind living under spring conditions all year round too! I just can't in < 30°C (< 86°F) summers here, I must have been a Miltoniopsis in my past life
    Nice color btw, I put my eyes on this one too, I've seen very similar in a nearby garden center, I want to it!
