    Post Miltoniopsis Herr Alexandre

    I'm not (yet) particularly good with Miltoniopsis but I like them so much! This one is exactly like my first one I managed to kill, just the flowers are huge on this one! Unfortunately almost no smell, which is a bit disappointing knowing my last one was that perfumed the whole room seemed being full of lilies or jasmine flowers! Can't complain though...11 cm size...
    I really hope to keep it alive and, even more - to make it rebloom...would be nice to get the same big flowers! My previous attempt ended with damaged roots and therefore smaller flowers...and only 2 of them.
    This time I'm reading like crazy the care instructions in all the books I have and on the internet!

    They are beautiful flowers but I have problems with them as well. I can get them to bloom again but the spike is short and only has 4-5 flowers. Wish I knew how to get those 2-3' spikes you buy them with!

    Then I noticed that one of the flowers from the second stem which is still in buds, has been trapped while growing trough the clip and has remained blocked. I tried to release it from the clip as careful as a cardiac surgeon would do a heart transplantation... to not break the stem nor damage even more the flower. Success! I did not break anything! It remained with a deep mark though.
