This is a seedling population, and the plants are near blooming size. They produce one to two inflorescences per growth with one to three flowers per inflorescence. The flowers will be white with a purple waterfall characteristic of this species. This species has a distinctly fragrance unlike its larger cousins, smelling vaguely like cotton candy.

Light: They prefer low to medium light, similar to Phalaenopsis orchids. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent leaf burn.

Temperature: Keep them in cool to intermediate conditions. Daytime temperatures of 70-75°F and night temperatures of 60-65°F are ideal.

Humidity: These orchids thrive in high humidity levels of 70-80%. If necessary, use a humidity tray.

Water: Miltoniopsis like to stay evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly when the top inch of potting mix starts to dry out. If you can this species likes to grow mounted, and you will avoid the leaf tip dieback which is quite common on this species.

Fertilizer: Use a balanced orchid fertilizer (20-20-20) every two weeks during active growth, reducing to monthly in winter.

Repotting: Repot annually in the spring after blooming, using a fine-grade potting mix.

Remember, Miltoniopsis are a bit finicky compared to other orchids, so they'll need a little extra care and attention, however they will reward you with large fragrant blooms for your efforts.
