    I am a recent milt. lover. I got this one back in October, but the flowers were only about half this size and the smells is AMAZING!

    Hi Clint,

    I'm a sucker for Milts, too! The smell, Hoa tells us, is roses. I couldn't describe it and he looked it up. And sure enough, it is! Intense roses that fill your house with fragrance. Gorgeous colors on yours, too.

    Default Thanks!

    The flower does have a thick velvety texture (thicker than other milts). This is a 3N plant and I think you can tell..quite easily..

    The flower is almost as big as a soda can. I have a picture of it next to a soda can, but I think the administrators of this board would slap me on the wrist for posting it...I don't know.

    Anyway, the scent is rose-like. Kind of like a "spicy rose"..if such a one exists.

    Post the soda can! I'd love to see the comparison. As long as the soda wasn't bottled by an orchid reseller, you're fine!
