    yes. apparently some guy wrote the word 'bratonia' before some other guy wrote 'miltassia' and it was recently 'rediscovered' or something. the guy that created the term 'bratonia' is dead, and his family gets nothing out of it, but at least they have confused every living orchidist for a good reason.

    really? they are almost unstoppable here? this is the one orchid i can rely on without fail, and no special treatment or fussiness at all?????????? doesn't the brassia parent give it some heat tolerance? mine gets some good heat in summer, no obvious problems. i have one inside, and another outside and they both bloom like crazy year 'round in heat or cold. did you give it enough light? they love good light. the one outside even gets some early morning sun. the tips are a little yellow, but it blooms often, and is bursting its pot apart growing so big.
