    Default Some of my orchids blossoming

    Hi guys! It's been a long time since I have written here but I've been a bit busy lately.

    So here are some of my darlings:

    I've bought it under the name Miltonia but I think is Miltoniopsis. This is the 2nd blooming at my place but this year due to my hesitating to repot it, the orchid lost quite a lot of roots as they got rotten and instead of a sea of flowers it made just 2. Anyways, it smells divine.

    When I bought it the seller said it is a hybrid between Laelia and Cattleya (Laeliocattleya?)

    Just shorted out the keyboard drooling all over...what a bunch of lovelies! We used to have a gentleman that would take several plants and make a grouping. I am guessing that bunch would make a lovely centerpiece. The one you chose to start with is just so nice. Makes me want a cool house so I could grow a few of those!

    Do the Miltoniopsis enjoy cooler weather? I've always liked those but have never had success with them, as I can't get the temps down to (some say) 58°. I heard they don't like it too hot too....is that true? How do you treat them?
