Planting+

Your Miltonidium orchid is supplied in a nursery pot. Stand it in a light spot indoors out of full sunlight. The ideal temperature for Miltonidium is between 18 and 22° C.

Care+

Keep the roots of the orchid moist with regular watering - use lukewarm (rain)water or other soft water. The plant will require watering more often in the summer - a nice soak in a bucket of lukewarm (rain)water will be appreciated. Good drainage is important. Add plant food to the water once a month. Use fertiliser for flowering plants, or tomato feed with a high potassium content. Ensure high humidity around the plant by regular spraying. Cut the flower stems out after flowering. Each pseudobulb flowers only once then grows at least one new pseudobulb.
If the plant outgrows its current pot, repot into a larger one. Miltonidium can then be divided into several plants but do leave at least 3 connecting pseudobulbs for each new pot. Use a sharp knife to divide and also some nice airy orchid potting compost for planting them in.

Dormant period

A Miltonidium orchid will grow new pseudobulbs, usually in the autumn. If you see them appear you will know your plant is still in growth. Once they are mature and feel quite firm, the plant will need a dormant period of about 8-12 weeks. Place your plant in a cooler spot (about 16°C), water sparingly (only once a fortnight) and do not feed. Don't allow it to dry out completely. New buds will grow in this dormant period, after which you can bring your Miltonidium back into a warm room, water more and start feeding it again. You will see the flower stems appear after about 2 months.
You can also help the buds to develop by keeping the plant in a sheltered spot outdoors. The temperatures during the days and nights will regulate budding. This is just an alternative way of giving the plant a dormant period.
 
 

Extra+

Mitonidium orchids came about by crossing two different orchids - the Miltonia and the Oncidium. The result is a fairly easy to grow houseplant that will receive loads of compliments.
