    Default Miltoniopsis hybrid

    Just to prove to y'all nawtheners that we sutheners can grow these things too, this is my one Miltoniopsis that I have to keep practically hugging the cool pads:
    Milt. Pearl Ono 'Lliwal' AM/AOS X Milt. santanaei.

    Very neat plants, these things, and I wish I could keep the GH cooler so that I could grow more of them....

    Not bad for a suthener.

    Truth be told, very good for a suthener or even one of us northern folk.

    That is pretty. Like it a lot.

    Your plants are PERFECT. The form, the quality of the foliage, the colors, all idealistic. It's great! It is clear you actually respect and pay attention to all of your plants. They are very happy. Great growing!

    Yoda,


    This real northerner (Matt & Skittles are mere pretenders LOL) is totally afraid of Miltoniopsis (although I love them). Anyway, it's a great looking plant.

    Cheers,

    Very lovely. I am amazed at your gorgeous foliage, on all your pics.

    What is a cool pad?

    Hey, thanks you guys, glad you like the way the plant looks too, foliage-wise. Means a lot, your noticing that. Yah, sometimes, use the Force must I.

    RS, the greenhouse is cooled by what's essentially a big swamp cooler. You ever see those? Four inch thick pads of corrugated "cardboard" are placed between two gutters, one above and one below, and water is sprayed over the pad. Warm air that gets pulled through the GH by fans on the other side gets cooled when it hits the wet pads. So the coolest part of the greenhouse is the side right next to these pads or the "cool cell," and that's where I grow the Paphs. and this Milt.

    Nice one, Louis!

    I'm such a sucker for milts and that is one beauty of a flower! Nice job, even if you are showing off!
