    Default Miltonia 'Soquel Volcano Queen'

    I just got this one, I am not typically a fan of Miltonia but this one has a great fragrance that I could not pass up.

    hmmm I think you are officially a fragrance person.


    I'm not usually a Miltonia person either, but I do like this one - the amount of white is lovely, and the very subtle (what is it called... waterfall?) markings are pretty.

    The Milts are growing on me. I especially like the *waterfall* markings on some of them.

    I love this one, not only for the fragrance but also because it is the first Milt I ever rebloomed. Also, a milt in a basket is not something I see every day. Did it come like that?

    The basket is a trick. There is actually a pot inside the basket. I just have it in the basket so that I could hang it

    Those flowers look BIG...yes..yes...me definitely like!

    I've only seen ugly & half dead milts in the stores here..so i have never really been tempted to buy one.

    Most Milts have to be grown cooler than other orchids. I usually see lots of them around in the spring time when it is not sooo hot here. After that, most milts do not take the heat very well.

    That is a beautiful one you have there, Forrest. Thanks for sharing a pic of it with all of us!

    Cheers!

    Wow! That's pretty. I'm not exactly "crazy" about milts, but they sure look pretty. Those are a lot of flowers on one spike. The fact that milts are called "Pansy orchid" isn't quite right (imo), because they look a million times better than pansies.

    I don't have a milt yet...but I have an orchid that's 1/2 milt.
