    Had this for a while as vexillaria alba, but with the touch of pink in the petals, would this be a light colored var. leucoglossa. Not all that up on this genus.

    Hello Chuck,
    I know this is an old post, but could you, please, help me with some cultural details for miltoniopsis?
    I have bought a very dehidrated NOID miltoniopsis from a supermarket in March.
    I took it because I hoped I could save it, but I still don't see any improvement. So I start being afraid that I will kill it instead....
    I love miltoniopsis, especially the fragrant ones, but I was never good in growing them :(
    Thank you,
    Dana

    Hi Dana,

    Sorry to be slow to respond. I have been traveling a lot lately. I grow Miltoniopsis on the intermediate to cool side with high humidity, even moisture and bright (but not direct sun). I water a lot so I use a slightly larger (medium) bark mix than normal, so it drains faster. If I have a plant in trouble (with no roots), I will sometimes put it in a plastic net pot with just NZ Sphagnum and that seems to bring back to health.

    Chuck

    Hi Chuck,
    Thank you very much. :) Your answer came in time for me. I am gathering information, while waiting for my new miltoniopsis...
    I wish to be able to grow this genus .... :) and many others.
    Your plant is amazing!
