Miltonia candida x binotii
Default Miltonia candida x binotii

This plant suffered from the unusual heat and constant sun in early summer - a few pseudobulbs were completely scorched and there is a bit of damage to leaves.

It has a nice floral fragrance in the morning and the blooms are quite different to what I was expecting - the vendor's website showed something more resembling a Miltonia Sunset.

Seed-grown hybrids are not necessarily predictable - just as children in a family look different, exactly how the genes from the two parents assemble themselves is highly variable and so plants may not be what was expected, or what their siblings may look like. Clones are supposedly genetically identical but even then, mutations can cause variation. But fragrance is a good thing! Sometimes fragrance is a fatality of hybridizing, so that one can (and often does) get a non-fragrant result from two fragrant parents.

I like this a lot. I have a M. candida hybrid about to bloom, I hope it gets some of those earthy/woody tones.
