    I love those, but it is just too warm here for them to do very well. Yours is lovely.

    Cheers,

    That really is gorgeous. Is yours kept in a greenhouse? I had assumed that it would be too hot in New York in summertime. Do you have to do anything to help it?

    My NOID miltonia gets moved around a bit, but generally seems to like the kitchen. It's a baby plant compared to your yours though.

    Yes it is kept in a greenhouse. I keep it in the cooler section. I tried one at home years ago and it didn't survive. I live about half way between NYC and Montreal so it is much cooler here than in NYC we are 3 growing zones different.

    Oh, I'm so jealous, Ron! I can't keep a Milt alive through the summer on my windowsill. But I love them so much, I do buy them, just to croak them.

    Tha's a huge specimen beauty! If you want a contribution to your collection, just past bloom, but still healthy, PM me!

    Oh, I adore Milts, but like many of the previous posts it is just too hot for them to really thrive here. Although that doesn't stop me from buying them and trying.

    That is a beauty! Thanks for sharing -- I feel a shopping itch coming on . . .

    I think I bought my Miltonia sometime in the summer last year, so it will be interesting to see how it gets on this year throughout a whole summer. It has a couple of healthy new growths (with no crinkling!!) but I don't know how long they take to mature so we shall see.
