Curled flowers on Miltoniopsis Robert Jackson 'Wild Thing'
Default Curled flowers on Miltoniopsis Robert Jackson 'Wild Thing'

I bought this in bloom in Feb or March, and greatly enjoyed the 5 spikes. Those wrapped up in about mid-June, and by late July I found 3 more spikes coming. However, the flowers aren't fully unfurling. I also have a rebloom coming in on a smaller milt.

I've read this is a humidity thing, and I've also not found a lot of suggestions for addressing that are compatible with a studio apartment. Is inadequate humidity your read as well, or something else?

It also might be, but isn't certain, that you're not watering enough. Be sure the medium is always moist.

That's fair, it does have some really coarse media that it came in. I was going to repot but then it put up new spikes so decided to wait.

Great root system, though.

Seems like you correct! I have a smaller milt that's reblooming, but I did get a chance to repot and used some percentage of perlite and spaghum in with the coarse bark, so it has retained water more than the Henry Jackson, and it just had the first bloom open normally. I'll adjust the medium when HJ finally lets me repot.
