New fun - a Miltoniopsis (noid, of course, but pretty)

    I stand corrected, Bruce and Trish. Funny thing, when I got my first Kodak Instamatic camera when I was about 10, I went out into the woods around my house in Massachusetts and took pictures of lady slippers - little ones, all pretty much the same looking, but they were so common that even as a 10 year-old I knew them. I would love to see the cypripediums found in GA - maybe the conservatory has some in its collection - I'll have to go look for it next time.

    BTW, I nearly lost my Milt outside in the 100 degree heat (inn the shade, no less), but it's recovering nicely in a formerly phal-occupied spot. It's become yet another of my once-overlooked and now-beloved species (hybrid, really, I guess). The only orchid I leave outside during the day - in the shade - is my mini-cym Golden Elf. The others aren't too happy with less light, but they also don't look like they're gasping for their last breath, either. They go out at night as long as I know I'll be up early enough in the am to move them inside (doesn't happen every day).

    Much as I would love a Milt, I know it's beyond me - or beyond what I can pay for air conditioning, much as my husband loves it cooler than I do. I tried one that was a rescue clearance item from a store, but it didn't make it. Maybe some day in the distant future I'll try again, but I'll leave them alone for now. Thanks for letting me enjoy yours!

    Thanks, Patty - As luck would have it, our HVAC system went on the fritz for 2 days last week and my milt is already screaming. I feel like putting it in the refrigerator! What do you have your best luck with?

    Beautiful Miltoniopsis! Beautiful purple color!

    Mine just bloomed - 1st bud open today. No special care. My house is not air-conditioned, but summers here are cool. Usually this plant is in 70s daytime and 60s nighttime, in summer and 60s daytime and 50s night time at night. I had it in a shaded west window in the winter and an east window in the spring and summer. It also is NOID. The fact that it bloomed on growth under my care makes me think I can grow orchids.

    Beautiful Miltoniopsis, Daniel. Not only can you grow orchids - they seem to flourish under your care. Well done.
