    Default Onc. Rosy Sunset "rosebud"

    I've been watching this flower spike grow for the past two months and I've been thinking this is going to be one spectatular show when it's full of blooms. So after after all this orchid foreplay this is all I got. The question is, will this be all that this plant will produce after all this effort? It's such a pretty little flower, it seems a shame there are only two.

    Miltonidium Rosy Sunset is a really beautiful oncid type hybrid and I find it very difficult to grow here mainly, I suspect, because of its Onc ornithorhyncum parent. After killing 2 of them I have thrown in the towel. Hope that the rest of flowers will develop on the spike. If they do then the display will be awesome.

    Well done! I have trouble growing oncs and the rest of their alliance, unfortunately. Catts are SO much easier.
