    Default Miltonia regnellii 'Moe' × 'Curley'

    Oh this crazy thing ...I keep waiting to post blooms and they are always attached to an unopened bud and the weight keeps the blooming from being upright. There are several spikes in a holding pattern. It was moved a few months ago into a larger tree fern basket and is sulking.
    Anyway...a very pretty little scented bloom when it cooperates. At times it will have up to 10 or 15 flowers. It never seems to have a distinct blooming season and will put on a show just about anytime.
    ...and don't mind the grubby fingernail I was repotting Catts.

    Had a M. regnellii quite a few years back. It actually did rather well -- blooming a few times -- then up and died. Ah well, fortunately it was a free plant. As I recall, the fragrance struck me as more of a chemical odor.......

    Don't you just love orchids that bloom like that! I have a few different ones that I can never get a good photo of because of the way the put their blooms out. Especially some of the orchids that have single blooms spread out about the plant.

    cheers,

    The fragrance is sort of like some species Datura I have. It kind of smells like sweet smelling Comet (the cleaning stuff)
