    Default Miltoniopsis keeps blooming?

    Let's be clear that I am NOT complaining here, but my unnamed Miltoniopsis was in full bloom when I acquired it last fall, it bloomed all winter, bloomed outside in the gazebo all summer (always had a couple of spikes), and continues to bloom... and grow. Is this normal? Should I be doing something to give it a rest? At any rate, it is sure earning its keep and is wonderfully fragrant.

    That's a nice problem to have. You are keeping it happy enough to continue to grow and produce new leads while it's blooming. These plants do not require a resting period.

    Geez, can I take over your problem so you don't have to worry anymore?

    I got 4 miltons over spring/summer as I couldn't resist the beauty. Houston is way too hot to grow them well, I have them inside of the house (outside is 94 today) and hope I can have a bloom or two next spring.

    Well, we had a very cool, wet/damp summer, and it was outside, which apparently kept it happy. In the winter, I keep it on a very cool northeast windowsill on a pebble tray and water/mist it with rainwater (or melted snow!) ... Since this plant likes me, maybe I should try more in this genus!

    I hope I have the same "problem". In SoCal, it uncommon to find Miltoniopsis forget abt the scented one. Yours r even fragrant I got me very jealous. I miss the smell.
