    Default Mtssa. Pelican Lake 'Everglades'

    I bought this one at Redlands, and it just opened up yesterday. In the sun it really sparkles. It has another bud next to it that should open shortly.

    Yeppers, Miltassias really "do" purple stars!!!

    I have a weakness for purple star orchids.

    Now look what you've done! I will have to add Miltassia Pelican Lake to my collection!

    The problem is I'd made a vow to buy no more orchids.

    Wait, though, I could still *trade* for more!

    Gorgeous bloom, Tracy. (You wouldn't be interested in a trade for an Oncidium Twinkle, would you? Just kidding! I think.)


    Cheers,

    Rob

    Thanks guys for the wonderful comments. Rob - Twinkle isnt one of my favs... BUT I will keep you in mind if I get tired of this plant, or if it doesnt do well for me.
