    Default Best deep red Miltassia-type orchid?

    What are anyone's recommendations for a deep, wine-red Miltassia-looking orchid? I usually love my purples, but I have a craving for a really deep red one of these spidery beauties. Not bright red, not rose, not mahogany. . . and I'm wary of photos online when I'm wanting to be that picky about color. I'm thinking about Miltassia Royal Robe 'Jerry's Pick' (seems to be hard to find, though, at least at the moment), Degarmoara Hani 'Star of Unicorn,' or
    Degarmoara Skywalker 'Red Star' -- but I'm not super attached to those, and would love to consider any and all suggestions. Partly because, hey, excuse to go looking at pics of gorgeous flowers!

    Red face Vuyl Cambria Plush

    @ Victoria; Does Vuyl Cambria Plush qualify? I recently bought one because I couldn't resist the red colour although I know it would not bloom in the hot lowlands where I live. Why did I purchase it then? I have found a friend living in the highlands who is willing to take care of it when the pseudobulbs mature and are ready to initiate flowering.

    I know it has no Brassia in its lineage but it has Miltonia. This photo has not been doctored. I took the pic of the Vuyl Cambria Plush I bought a few days ago.

    Maybe not the spidery Brassia type flowers but a very prolific bloomer in red.

    Hi Victoria, M. Royal Robe 'Jerry's Pick'is a great plant, very prolific in it's flowering. However the coloring may not be what you want. I find it to be more a cross between red and purple. I attached a pic of mine. What do you think?

    Hey, the forum wasn't sending me replies! I'm so sorry all you cool people were posting pics of your flowers for me and I wasn't even looking. And now I have even more to think about.

    I almost bought one that looks a lot like that Colm., but with a fatter lip (maybe it was in a fight). And I'm thinking about a Vuyl.. in a really vivid pink -- I just started seeing those in the past. . . maybe year or two? They all seem to have incredible colors! The lip on that Cambria Plush looks like the train on a formal ballgown, too. Really lovely. And Ischel, that's an extremely helpful and extremely pretty photo in the sunlight -- it looks like that is the color I'm thinking of, a dark wine red, and it looks great with the bright green foliage. I guess that "wine" note I have on my mind does lean toward purple, but purple is such a default setting for me I don't even think about it being there.

    Thanks, everyone, and congratulations on your gorgeous red blooms!
