    Really lovely. I just got Miltassia Dark Star 'The OrchidWorks' with 4 spikes not open yet. I'm hoping the plant will adjust well and not blast the buds. I've enjoyed looking at yours in the meantime.

    Yours looks great and with 9 spikes, just wait till all of those blooms open! WOW.

    This plant grows very fast. I look forward to seeing yours soon, Angie. And Meg yours will spike soon; it appears to be their season.

    Bruce, this is beautiful!!! So lovely! I think I should get one... I have a couple other Miltassias spiking now (well only one spike...) but I don't have that one. I need it!

    Thanks, Roy! I don't know that I have ever grown a Brazilian miltonia, but if they are as easy as this one, I want one!!
