    I've seen a few pics of the Miltassia Shelob 'Tolkien'. This variety looks to have a thinner more Brassia-type flower. Nice!

    Bill,
    I love the colors on it too. Can you post a close up of the flower? I have Miltassia Shelob 'Tolkien' that just starts to bloom, would like to see the difference between two.

    Hi, here is a close up pic for Lizgeo and also one that shows a bit of the variegation on the leaves. New leaves have much more but loose it as they age. I haven't noticed any scent. perhaps it jusct occurs during the day and I haven't been home to notice it. Thanks for the comments, Bill

    Thanks, Bill! The gold trim on leaves are cool.

    My 'Tolkien' starts to bloom too, I don't see that much difference from yours. I will take some pictures this weekend for comparison.

    Wowee. Like shooting stars. Great color and a nice spray of blooms. Good growing.
