Miltassia orchids are intergeneric hybrids of Brassia and Miltonia. This variety produces elongated leopard speckled blooms with a soft purple lip. Long spindly blooms have earned this genus the title of "spider orchid". A rewarding orchid perfect for beginners.



Potting mix: Fine bark or fine and long fiber sphagnum mix. Repot in Spring every 1-2 years.

Light: Bright indirect - medium light. Does not care about window direction. Protect leaves from direct sun exposure.

Water: Water frequently in hot months when media reaches dry (about once or twice a week). Slightly more drought tolerant than Miltonia. 

Temp: Intermediate-warm (50F min night, 90F max day).

Humidity: 40-80%, tolerant of low humidity but prefers intermediate.

Fertilizing: Heavy feeding Spring-Summer. 1/2 strength urea-free fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Flush the pot once monthly to prevent salt build up. Decrease to once monthly in Winter.
