I thought moreliana was a variety of the Miltonia spectabilis? I'm a newbie though.

I have one labelled Miltonia spectabilis var. moreliana?

Anyway, it's beautiful and I love it! And to the OP, yes, they seem to be quite prolific! Each of the newest pseudobulbs on mine has two new growths each, so I can see how they become a large plant in short order!

What used to be called "Miltonia spectabilis var. moreliana" has now been moved into its own species, so Miltonia moreliana. So... same plant, reclassified. Apparently different enough from other Miltonia spectabilis to get its classification changed... I don't change tags, too much work. Relevant if you submit it for judging, or breed with it.

Ooooh! Thanks for the clarification!

Either way, I love mine and it's a very vigourous grower, apparently! They have the most beautiful dark purple flowers against bright green leaves, so pretty! But I just repotted mine a few months ago and already had to up-pot it! So that's my only complaint about it, is I think it might be hard to manage the size after a while, but otherwise is one of my favourites.

I don't think there's a universal answer to that. Some plants like to send their roots deep, while others tend to spread them laterally.

My advice is to pot plants up how it's convenient for you, become a careful observer, and if it looks like they're moving in one direction or another, you can adjust at the next regular repotting.
