Miltonia spectabilis var moreliana

Miltonia spectabilis var moreliana - Flower photo by Richard LindbergMiltonia spectabilis grows well in cultivation and very often generates two leads off of each pseudobulb. It is a great plant to produce a specimen plant. That's what I am trying for here. I was expecting a little more "wow" this year but I am not feeling it. The over-heating earlier in the year is a factor but even so there should be more going on.

Miltonia spectabilis grows in Brazil. It is cool to hot growing. Light level should be high and it should be a pale green. Blooms in summer and fall.

I will grow it this way for one more year then take it apart and do something else with it.


  1. Nice. Why not give it another year or two on that mount?

  2. One more perhaps. It spreads out pretty fast.
