I love these enough that if I had enough money, I would totally buy a house in Washington state or British Columbia just to be able to grow these right.
Yeah, I heard the yellow one is harder to grow.
Dang, I love my yellow one!
also the yellow color tend to disappear when crossing with others. then again, I read somewhere that they found a specie that's yellow and that might be used in the hybridization. That was at least 5 years ago and I don't know what happened since then.
So far, the temperature in my apartment has been 75-85 during the day and 60-70 at night.
I leave my window open for that extra lower temperature and humidity. Move all my miltoniopsis close to the window or place them on the floor where it's hopefully a little bit cooler.
so far, all the buds have opened perfectly fine. Some of them came with new shoots here and there. they seem to grow slow or even stopped to grow.
now the days and nights are only going to get hotter as we get into summer.
Do yours grow new shoots after flowering or at the same time as flowers are on? I heard when they are grown right, they can be in flower much of the year, so I assume some of these can grow constantly if conditions are right. or maybe just certain hybrids and with the right condition.
I'm loving these and try not to think too much into the potentially dark future with these.
