    That's the strange thing about this. In some perverted way I like the oddness of #4. #2 seems a bit ordinary.

    I should not be a judge.

    This what they say about #4

    Miltoniopsis bismarckii x Milt. vexillaria 'lambeauiana' FCC/RHS
    Code:HV-843

    "The Miltoniopsis bismarckii used here is a beautiful peach pink. Crossed with the elegant lambeauiana, we expect a stunning primary Miltoniopsis hybrid. These will be unique in form. "

    And #2:

    Miltoniopsis Lady Snow 'Hanashobu' AM/AOS x Milt. Mem. Janet Rowand 'Marilyn'
    Code:HV-828

    Memoria Janet Rowand 'Marilyn' is one of the best all pinks from the grex. The flowers are large and the sepals are a lighter shade of pink. Expectations are for nice pinks with multiple spikes on each growth. Elegant form from the Miltoniopsis Lady Snow 'Hanashobu' AM/AOS.

    #3:

    Miltoniopsis vexillaria ( - Carolina - x 'lambeauiana' FCC/RHS - 1910 )
    Code:HV-833

    There are no outcrosses of this beautiful species available - until now! These should be absolutely sensational! The vexillaria Carolina is from Juan Felipe Posada of Colomborquideas and was in his exhibit at the W.O.C. in Canada. We were pleased to get a division of this lovely pale pink vexillaria. Miltoniopsis vexillaria 'lambeauiana' received an FCC/RHS in 1910 and is a division from our good friend Mr. Woody Carlson. Here is your chance to have some fine Miltoniopsis vexillarias at a reasonable price.

    That! got an FCC? Oh my. Must because the judges new Posada entered it.

    I guess I should have entered this when I had the chance. Pffft.

    #4 is just used in the breeding. I happen to be around an expert Milt breeder for some time and he would cross the ugliest two deformed odd shaped flowers and get the most beautiful seedlings.

    I'm even more sold on the first one... they say that it's fragrant, and that it will bloom in autumn and then again in spring... what more can one ask for... pfft to the FCC...

    I am in no way an expert on Milts but #2 jumped out at me first thing. I don't usually like pink either!!! #1 is my second fav.
    Good luck with a hard decision.
