    Default Miltonia clowesii

    Here is another that opened this morning. Easy grower and very tolerant of some neglect, just set and forget really!
    It's pretty common and guess most of you have one, but just had to share. They are so pretty.
    Hope you like.
    Cheers

    Yes, yes...get one. These are the easiest of the Miltonias in my experience. Mine is rather mistreated and neglected and still blooms it's head off!! well, maybe not so mistreated...ok, it gets a slight pampering! but nowhere as spoilt as the rest in the collection, maybe because these are so common here.
    They are so common that we sell flowering cuttings with 2 or 3 bulbs for AUD $5!!! and we can't sell that many!! he he he
    Just about everyone I know has one laying around in their backyards.
    All the same, they are gorgeous and worthy of any collection. We call them "clown orchids" here and they are that indeed. Very colourful and cheery.
    Cheers
