Default Miltonia flavescens

A while back I pored through OB posts on Miltonias. I came across a number of posts by WhiteRabbit where she speaks of how she cares for her Miltonia flavescens, like

this one.

I know it grows in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and friends have told me how hot and cold it gets there. There is a photograph one can find searching of a plant in the crotch of a tree there covered with snow (though it does not get much below freezing and snow is very rare there.) I thought, "I can grow that!", and began looking.

This plant came to me from Hausermann's in mid March of this year. It had three old pseudobulbs, the most recent with a dried inflorescence, and three new growths pushing from that growth.

I was gone for a week at the end of March. On my return I found a well-advanced flower spike from one of the newest growths. It has been in bloom for almost two weeks now. It has a nice floral-spicy fragrance when I poke my nose into the flowers. Maybe I'll get flowers on the other new growths?

In the photo you can see the plant in its 3.25" / 8.25cm square pot on the concrete slab.

Thank you, WhiteRabbit!

Sweet! I noticed on mine that I never got spikes on all the new growths, I don't know if that is typical ? They do get a lot of new growth every year (each of the previous new growths all, without fail, got two new growths). Spikes start on the new growths while they are still developing.

It seems you can grow Miltonias in the desert.
Good job!

MiltoniA, not MiltoniOPSIS!

Ha ha, today I'm shopping online for portable swamp coolers for my sunroom. I don't mind me suffering in the heat, but it's different for the orchids!
