    Default Milt. Lynne Waihee

    Does anyone have information on a Milt. Lynne Waihee ('white queen' X 'Black rain') I've been searching for a culture sheet on this one, but I can't find one. I just purchased a plant at auction but I have no idea how to take care of it. Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't seem to have much success with them - I think Gin or GI Jane could help you out. Have a friend that has 'Black Rain' - really striking flowers on that one!

    if the foliage is a blue/grey green then it will be a MILTONIOPSIS known as the Columbian Miltonias.With these the pbulbs are close together to help sort put the cultural requirements.

    Heres a link that will help you

    Nabakov,

    I don't know if you saw my post from yesterday, but it's really important to keep the humidity up as all the flowers open. Milt's are notorious for only partially opening. And it seems ambient humidity is the key factor.

    A pebble tray underneath or a humidifier nearby would help it. Although June in NC may be humidity enough...

    Default Julie is right!

    Do try to keep the humidity at least 60%..Julie is right.

    If the humidity falls any lower, I've had problems with the labellum wrapping around the petals and crinkling.

    These plants can be unforgiving buggers.

    My average humidity is 62%, and with a humidity tray, my Milt. is blooming nicely. Thanks for the advice guys!

    Very pretty! It has that lovely deep dark mask of Dark Rain. Enjoy the fragrance - like a room full of roses
