    Default Miltoniopsis hybrid - of the "Waterfall" type

    These flowers are about 4.5 inches high - could be at least half an inch if not an inch higher if well grown. Likewise, spikes of 2 flowers are not good - 5 or 6 is perfectly possible. Two leads, only one of which is double spiking ( 2nd spike will flower in a few weeks ). Again, double spiking is normal.

    So - mea culpa - my culture not what it might have been, last year, when I was preoccupied looking after my wife in her last days.
    But hey, this plant has not flowered at all for several years , so I will not look a gift horse in the mouth . Welcome back to flowering, ( I told it ) and "i'm sure you will do better next year".

    I have not bothered to put the name in ; there are maybe thousands of Milt' hybrids registered, and only a dozen different flower patterns/colours , so you can find the same flowers on plants with very many different names.
