This one is Miltassia Charles M Fitch 'Izumi' AM/AOS, a large orchid seedling that puts out lovely flowers. We think it's likely to flower within the next 18 months or so. Not in bloom now.
A member of the oncidium family, this orchid (Brs varrucosa x Milt spectabilis) blooms twice a year when mature and pretty much grows like the proverbial weed.
When it blooms, the flowers are just amazing -- relatively large, somewhat spidery and simply stunning. The color is a wonderful mottled lavender/purple on the petals and sepals, with a little olive green in the background; the large lip is a stunning lavender with some spots in the center.
Mature plants can have 6 to 8 flowers per bloom spike and we have seen some grown up specimens with a dozen or more spikes all at once. Spectacular!
This one is a clone of the award winning Miltassia Charles. M. Fitch 'Izumi' AM/AOS.
These are easy to grow. Medium light and water are best, fertilize weakly twice a month. We have a bunch of these and we'll pick out a nice one for you.
The picture shows the kind of flowers to expect, and the plants in our greenhouse. We include free growing instructions.

Top notch customer service. I communicated with Beth and she was quick to respond and super accommodating. Each of my 4 orchids was packaged with love. A bamboo rod was packed with each to add support and protection. Newspaper shreds closet to media was dampened to keep plant hydrated. The orchids are very healthy and beautiful. I will definitely shop from TheOrchidGallery again!
