    Miltonia clowesii, a true, warm-growing, high-light Brazilian Miltonia, grown up high in the greenhouse for maximum light, mounted on cork with no moss, etc., misted to saturation daily. Blooming for the second time this year, once last spring and again now. Lightly scented.

    This is a great species. I don't grow it, but I have grown many of its hybrids over the years. Miltonias are great. I tend to grow mine potted and let them sit with a small amount of water in the saucer. They really love water.
