    Cool Help with odont identification

    I picked this up in June, without any label or flower. But it was so healthy and fresh looking (and cheap), I couldn't leave it there. Four months down the line this is the result. I'm very pleased but am struggling to id it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Definitely in that family. Maybe a Mtssa. Looks like it to me. I'm sure there's someone on this forum that can help! Good luck with the id. It's a lovely bloom and I see what looks like a couple of new spikes. You did really well with this one. Congrats

    I would say definitely a Miltassia, sort of along the lines of Charles M Fitch 'Izumi'.

    Just on a quick internet search I think the Miltassia 'Royal Robe' looks like a pretty good match to yours.

    to Miltassia, but not sure on the exact name. So many of these look so similar. You did a very nice job growing it though!

    Cheers,
