    Default Miltonidium Rosy Sunset

    Hey Guys- One of the other orchids in bloom right now, and this thing is awesome, with 5 spikes although only 2 are blooming right now. Trying to get a picture of the individual flowers, but boy are they blurry--have to take it outside in the bright sun to get my camera to cooperate!

    Hope to see a close up of the blooms too, Derek. It looks like a fantastically healthy plant with all those blooms and even a spike still in bud!

    Cheers,
    BD

    i like the light, chocolaty scent of this one, as well as the rosey flowers.

    Close up picture of the bloom! They are about half an inch each. And there are three unbloomed spikes on this thing. It is really gonna be showy! I can't smell any fragrance, but maybe it is only fragrant at certain times of the day?

    Derek, maybe the scent will be more obvious when the other spikes have begun opening.

    Default Update time, new blooms!

    Here it is in full bloom again, its just a lovely orchid! And it is WAY fragrant this time, like a spicy vanilla.
