    Default Miltassia in blooms.

    My miltassia royal robe in an un usual bloom.



    The bloom spike coming from the top of the pbulbs instead of from the base of the pbulbs.



    And my other miltassia in bloom.

    I have an alaceria that spikes on both sides and in the middle too. Last blooming, when I bought it (I bought it marked down so most flowers were expired) actually had 4 spikes. One on each side and 2 from the middle of the pb.

    I am hoping and looking everyday for signs of new spikes on the new growth. Nothing yet.

    When i bought it last year this is how it blooms. The flower spike came from the base of the pbulbs.

    Hope yours plant blooms soon Harvey. Maybe once they're adjusted to the new environment they'll bloom.

    That is a beauty!

    I think the new growth is still young. The pb is just being exposed. So there is time yet! 4 spikes would be sweet!

    it bloomed with peloric flowers? and had normal flowers before? did they all come out that way, or just the one? i have some peloric phals, but all their flowers come out with the different shape. could just be a mutant flower, but that does look like a peloric form. cool though!

    yes last year they bloom normal, but this year they give out only two flowers in this condition. But it's beautiful and the colour just becomes intense day by day.

    looks amazing, are you going to make divisions when the time comes or allow it to grow together and produce a very large display?

    I'm going to keep it as it is and let it grow into a big plant for a nice display of flowers.
