    Default Miltonia clowesii

    Had this plant for about a year , growth is reasonably quick but the spike takes an age to get to flowering size.
    Colour of piccies is very accurate.
    I think it,s worth the wait.The flowers open sequenntially , well maybe 1 or 2 @ a time.

    Oh! Anything with orange tones is great! and spots too! and a purple lip! We might consider it for honorary membership in the Green and Purple club because of that lip!

    That's a really nice one! It still sometimes amazes me the colors that get put together on some of these things. I mean, burnt orange and violet--who would have thought that would work? But it does! Gorgeous flower, I think.
