    Question Please help! Mystery Orchid! Maybe Miltassia...

    Hello everyone! My mother found this orchid photo online and fell in love with it. She wants me to find her one like this but I cannot find any information. I'm pretty sure it's a Miltassia but I cannot find the exact one, I've found a few that are similar but not this one. Any help is MUCH APPRECIATED! Please identify this orchid.

    It will not be possible to positively identify a hybrid like this, too many similar possibilities, but I can get you into the right ballpark. A more complex hybrid than Miltassia, look for Aliceara (or Beallara) Marfitch as an example of the type.
