    I love the colors on this miltoniopsis, and it has FOUR spikes - just coming out. Anyone know if these milts are particularly slow bloomers?Name:  miltonclose.jpg

    Thanks, but the general attitude towards noids keeps me from holding my breath on this one - and there are some much cooler looking miltoniopses than this one - as I'm finding out in my orchid educational journey

    Beautiful. Love these pansy orchids but too cool (pardon the pun) for our growing conditions here.

    Wow, Andrew - you and I must be at least 2 generations apart - I'm doing my best to interpret, but real words help me a lot.

    But you have a lot of other orchids that you can grow and we can't - do you grow angraecums, by any chance? You do have the advantage of actually living in a native orchid habitat - I seriously doubt there are any orchids indigenous to Atlanta.

    Pretty Miltoniopsis orchid. It is too hot here in my greenhouse to grow these too.

    There are 53 listed native orchids found in Georgia, Maura. Your state is very lucky to have so many native orchids growing there.

    Yep, Bruce beat me to it! You'd be surprised how many orchids are out there. Some may not be big showy flowers like we collect, but if you observe carefully, they are unmistakably orchids.

    Some common ones in Georgia:

    Tipularia discolor which is found in every county in Georgia.

    Cypripediums

    We had a guest speaker at our OS from Australia. She photographs terrestrial orchids there and asked me where to find orchids on her vacation in South Dakota. I was pretty sure any that may have existed were extinct now. She hiked for 10 minutes in the Black Hills and found TWO! Since then, whenever I'm in a wooded or natural prairie area, I try to be more aware of the flowers I'm walking past. So far, no luck.

    I have a Milt outside with my Catts through this heat wave. It seems to be weathering the 100 degree heat without actively declining, but it's not growing much either. . .
