    Question Dana, what conditions do you have for your Miltonidium Rosy Sunset?

    I recently bought a Miltonidium Rosy Sunset, the same breed as in your pictures. Your orchid looks fabulous! I'm curious what light/temperature/humidity conditions you have it in? I can't seem to find any information in the book I have or on the internet. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    That is a fantastic plant! I agree with BD, that should win an award. Symmetry, form, foliage, etc, etc, etc, . Great growing.

    Now, I have to ask, what did you mean when you thought it was a Cambria?

    Daniel, I don't really do anything special with it.
    Most of the year it's grown indoors and it goes outside for the summer.
    I try to keep the humidity above 40% but it's hard when growing indoors during the winter with all the radiators on.
    Winter time I feed it maybe once every 2 months and spring and summer I feed it every second or third watering.

    Light: During the winter it's in a south facing window. In Sweden we have very little hours of sun during the winter and this winter it didn't receive any extra supplemental light. But it seems to be doing great anyway.
    Here's a pic of it today:


    Just this morning I was trying to decide wether I should divide it or not.
    I'm a bit intimidated by it's huge root system and it's spiking at the moment so I don't want to disturb it to much.
    The pot is completely full and there's very little room for the new growths
    Maybe that's why it's spiking from a lot of immature pbulbs this year.

    Whoops...sorry about the long post.

    The label said it was a Cambria. Cambria is a trade name most big european orchid nurseries use on a lot of the labels of the orchids they sell. I guess it's cheaper for them this way instead of printing the correct name for every orchid they sell.
    You can find a dendrobium labeled as a cambria as well as an oncidium.
    It just doesn't make any sense!

    Dana, very nice going: all that lush foliage! It obviously likes what you're doing for it!

    And, I've been a bad moderator, :duh: leaving this thread where it was instead of putting it in its proper category. Thanks, Rob, for pointing out where it should go.

    Dana-

    Thanks for the interesting trivia. That really is goofy!
    I'll have to update my plant list and change them all to Cambria!

    Dana,

    I think you should divide it. Then I think you should sell me one of the divisions. No, wait, I made a vow not to buy more orchids. (Someone slap me for suggesting it!) All my foolishness aside, I think it's a really nice plant (and very vigorous), even if you don't know its identity.


    Cheers,

    Rob

    Rob, if it wasn't for CITES I would have gladly send you a division.
    Right now I'm thinking about just potting it up
