    Hi Jack,

    The flowers are about 4 inches tall and three inches wide. Sorry about the blurry photos. I had trouble holding the tape measure and the camera at the same time.

    Hi, they really look much more like Brazilians Miltonias. I love the visual gossamer on petals. That’s stunning.

    hum...also love the cachepot ( flower-pot holder)!

    Bruce, your growing & flowering a hybrid from one. Shouldn't be a problem to grow the parent.

    Woah, that orchid is stunning BD, that's a specimen plant with so many leads and spikes, and woah! the size of the flowers, viewed in real must be really breathtaking. I only have a seedling of Miltassia Aztec 'Toni', I think I would like to get some more Miltassias now! Thanks for sharing with us.

    Cheers
