    are the ones you hate possibly the hajime ono crosses with tons of splashiness and the waterfall lip thing?

    no reason in particular -- just curious. i dont grow any miltonias, but i did have one sent to my mom and stepdad for her birthday last year. the pair of them love pansies, so they also loved the chid (which was an ono cross).

    Hard to say. It does have to do with color, markings, shape. That really helps, doesn't it?

    Here's an example of one that makes my skin crawl:

    So Kev,

    If the photos are of the parents, you'll have no idea what you're getting.

    Still...did you ever meet an orchid you didn't like?

    Yes, I have. I won't name things or I'll make enemies real fast.

    I decided not to order any. Sorry for putting you all through this. T'was fun though.

    I decided to keep looking for small Milts. By that I mean ones that stay small. I know they're out there. I just have to find them.
