Looking for the name of this Orchid

palbin(9)November 26, 2008

Hello everyone -

I found this orchid in an office a number of years back, I brought it home and put it in a palm tree in my backyard, and I think it likes it here! Wondering what this little beauty's name is... anyone recognize it?

Thanks for your time in advance.

Welcome to the Orchid Gallery. It looks like a Brazilian Miltonia hybrid. I used to grow lot of these beauties, but am unable to make any further ID.

If you scroll down further, there are some photos of some of the ones I used to grow. Hope it helps.

It's a Milt OK, it's not unlike Miltonia clowesii, and could even be that given that the color on these is very variable.
