    Default MTDM Hawaiian Sunset

    I have 6 spikes on this plant and this is the second bloom for this year. The fragrance isn't the best but I keep it out on the covered patio so I don't have to smell it. I do love the colors and the lush spikes.

    The primary parent is Miltonia warscewiczii. Unfortunately, the species is also known as Oncidium fuscatum. IOSPE shows the Miltonia as the preferred name. OrchidWiz shows it as Oncidium fuscatum, making the cross: Oncidium Hawaiian Sunset.

    Parents are Onc. fuscatum x Onc. Pupukea (hehe - that's where the fragrance likely comes from, Cin! Great Auntie's vomit!) And Pupukea is Onc. fuscatum x Onc. cheirophorum. So it's 75% fuscatum and 25% cheirophorum.
