    Default Miltoniopsis Grainville #2

    #2 because I have collected several of this recent Eric Young cross. Not the happiest plant , I'm not going to show you the bulbs which have that orange stain that Mtps sometimes get, which can precede an early visit to the rubbish heap, but I think its growing out of it. Slightly unusual shape - very large lateral petals giving it the "big-eared " look.
    The orange patch in the middle is called "the mask" btw , and is one of the interesting features in Mtps flowers.

    I love these orchids, but sadly every time I try they end up "in the rubbish heap"! I drool from afar now. Thanks!

    Never heard it called the 'mask' before. I like that, seems appropriate and descriptive. Thanks Geoff!

    Cheers,

    Why does yellow mean the trash?? And can I pretend my address starts with "trash heap"?? All I see is a pretty flower that melts in our heat....which of course is probably why I want some of them so badly. Anything that flowers here is cause for much celebration and a hop and skip off to get the camera. Sometimes that includes weeds....

    [QUOTE=Cjcorner;229133]Why does yellow mean the trash??

    The orange stain on Mts bulbs often means that something has died . They just sort of dry up - strop growing....I don'tknow of its a bacterial infection orsomething which is specific to Miltoniopsis.or just their reaction to it... maybe the latter, since the silver colour of bulbs and leaves - usually meaning xerophytic tendency - ( abiliiy to stand strong sunlight for example) is not particularly true here - its just the way they are.)
