I have just bought a miltonia rubenesque ' juicey'. Its a waterfall miltonia. I have been after a waterfall one at a reasonable price for ages. I don't know why they are asking such ridiculous prices for these in aus. I am excited to find one at a price i am willing to pay and the size that is worth buying. Its in flower and when i get it I will post a photo hopefully the flowers will still be worth a photo. i bought one a while ago and the thing was all the bulbs were shrivelled and hasn't done anything it had a new growth on it but no roots and that has stalled i live in hope that it will come good but I'm not confident so I got a replacement i think i was had there anyway these are the risks you take buying online luckily that doesn't happen very often
We always want to see pictures of what posters post about. It helps us relate and give better advice.
when i receive the orchid i will post some picks hopefully the flowers will survive the australiapost

i found a photo online this isnt my plant but its the same size and variety
Nice photo...but we prefer "Your" orchid. Its more realistic and first hand experience from you.
Please do post when you receive it...
I'm really confused now. I have that exact same plant and after reading posts was convinced it was a miltonopsis, the pansy type with the wonderful fragrance. Am I wrong?
probably not the people selling them in aus dont name them properly i would say you are right in your naming as miltoniopsis thanx for your feed back i have been waiting for 6 months for one of these to come on the market at a reasonable price i cant wait to receive it
Think I'd have called it the 'bat-eared-crab' miltonia.
this is the one i first bought online that was all shrivelled as i descibed in the original thread I am not sure of its future i still water it and furtilize it with all my other orchids

as you can see the leading growth on the new shoot has died it doesn't fill me with confidence. This was how i received it.
