    Default Miltassia Royal Robe 'Diplomat'

    The flowers are not as bright as I recall from previous flowerings - maybe it's my ,emory at fault, or perhaps some cultural thing. Now into its second year in S/H after being a bit unhappy in conventional culture. I note that although it has made good bulbs,but they are only flowering on one side - in the past in S/H they have always double spiked and usually produced two leads from each bulb too . Perhaps the bigger bulbs this year show that it is on the way baclk in all respects.
    Big flowers , perhaps 6 inches spread, in a vertical direction.

    I bet this one sitting next to the green cattleya you posted earlier and the Burr. Nelly Isler would make a great looking arrangement too. Really pretty blooms. You have so many orchids in bloom now. Must have been so nice to come home from your trip and see all of this color in your greenhouse.

    cheers,
