    Default Miltassia flowers!

    As I said a week earlier, I would post a pic of that NoID Mtssa once I get my camera back. So here it is! One spike is blooming, another has fat buds, and the other three are still quite small. It has velvety, red, 5 -inch tall flowers.

    Miltassia Orchid

    Also, any ideas of its name?

    I've never actually seen that one before, so can't help with the naming. Sure is a pretty bloom though! Maybe someone else has some idea of what it might be.

    Great looking blooms.

    Maybe Miltassia Royal Diplomat or a similar clone.

    Thanks y'all, for the compliments and names.

    I went on the web and did a search on each of those names. Yep, I think it looks identical to the photos of Mtssa. Royal Robe 'Jerry's Pick' HCC/AOS. Hmmm...it's been awarded . That's interesting.

    Well, I obviously can't be 100% sure that's the real name, but oh well, it looks very close though. I'll go with that name for now.
