Miltonia (spectabulis x Jim MacKinney)

The next space hog is this mounted Miltonia hybrid. It is starting new growths and has initiated spikes. I took it apart yesterday.

There are many divisions and quite a few backbulbs. I am going to offer those over the summer. But there are six that are nice divisions and have spikes initiated.

Here is how it works. You pay $5 plus actual postage and it comes Priority Mail. (I'll let you know, but it will be around $6.) Add a comment claiming it and then go to this page to get my direct email address so we can work out the details. Send me your shipping address. No first-time restriction for this one!

The roots are a little sparse but the new growth will produce enough during the summer.

I am flashing back on the old used car ads where the salesman sez
"I must be crazy to offer deals like this."
