    Miltoniopsis , of course. Not the full gamut of colours available, but rather what is actually out in flower at the moment.
    These things are quite quick from flask to flower ; at one time in the distant past, any new orchid nursery ( in UK) starting into business, would have lots of these to sell. Nowadays, anyone starting into business in this trade just takes a van across the Channel to the Dutch Westland, goes to a cash and carry, and fills the van with industrially mass produced plants, occasionally these are Mtps, but rarely any of the new varieties, or variations such as might be produced if a bit of hybridising had preceded the flasking.
    The Eric Young Foundation did have a go at this genus a few years ago, and produced a few new nice ones - I remember a glorious black with yellow waterfall markings, but that has not percolated down to the trade to be meristemmed and made available - but that is not their object in life anyway - anything we do get from EYOF is crumbs from their table as it were.
    Whatever ; have a nice Easter, and enjoy your flowers - I do enjoy mine.
