    A nice red with a "waterfall" lip and highly fragrant. Easy to grow. These guys grow multiple spikes so you get blooms for months.

    Always love Miltonias. This one is very nice with the color and tear drops.

    I know. After drooling over pictures for a long time, I bought some to try them out. Since the vendor told me the keep them out of heat, I am growing them inside. No sign of spikes yet.

    Randy - Unless you live someplace cool, these have to be grown indoors. If you are comfortable in a room then they are. I give bright/indirect light and don't let them get too try. Feed ligthly, like masd. and they should bloom for you twice a year.

    I wish I could grow milts like that!!! It is just too warm here during the summer. I envy your milts!! This one is particularly beautiful. I like your description of 'waterfall' lip too. It is so pretty. I suspect it is highly fragrant as well. The one milt we grow here is fragrant and I love when it blooms. Nice growing!!

    Cheers,
    BD
