Default Miltondium Red Brick Road ArbecĚ ID

Hello all,

I have this Miltonidium that I believe is Red brick Road ďArbecĒ. I do however have doubts that it could it possibly be something else like Bartley Schwartz. Is there a way to tell the difference? I have mine pictured in the attachments section and I can share more views if it would be helpful.

Here is the story with it:

About a month ago I was at the NYBG store and I happened to see this orchid for sale sitting next to an almost identical one (albeit maybe a minuscule amount smaller, darker flowers) which had the tag Red Brick Road ďArbecĒ.

However, while I was deciding which of the two I wanted someone bought the labeled one.

They were both placed next to each other in the oncidium section and were both fragrant (although it seemed maybe the one I chose was a bit more fragrant). The question of which was more fragrant led to the difficult decision of tagged plant vs. identical untagged slightly more fragrant plant. Unfortunately, another customer made this decision for me by buying the labeled one.

Whatís the likelihood some other customer just took the tag off of mine (as Iíve seen happen) vs. it being a completely different plant?

I donít plan on entering it in any contest but I was wondering if its ID is certain enough to not need to buy another confirmed red brick road. Red brick road was on my wishlist and I donít want to get a duplicate.

Is it safe enough to tell myself Iíve successfully acquired a red brick road? Sorry that I most definitely sound insane

Here is a link showing an image of a confirmed Red Brick Road ďArbecĒ.


Here is one for the Bartley Schwartz

No opinion on ID but with tagged Phalaenopsis Iíve found at box stores, not every plant is tagged. There might be half a dozen identical plants and if Iím lucky one will be tagged. Iíve seen the pot trays that greenhouses keep them in and I wonder if just one plant in the tray is tagged and if youíre lucky that one makes it to your store? With the Phalaenopsis, Iím comfortable assigning the tagged plantís designation to the rest of the identical plants.
