Miltonia phymatochila is an epiphytic orchid from the genus Miltonia.

DescriptionEdit

Plants bloom from spring to summer with several 5 cm flowers. Flowers are fragrant with a spicy scent.

DistributionEdit

Plants are found in Espiritu Santo state Brazil at elevations 650 to 1300 meters

CultureEdit

Grow in warm conditions with moderate light during Summer, and more light during Winter. During the growing period, high humidity is essential for successful cultivation (which makes them not so easy to grow in a windowsill). The pot medium should not dry out completely when growing, but sufficient drainage is needed to avoid root rot. At all time mist the plants frequently, if possibly in the morning to mimic the morning dew of the natural habitat. Plants should be potted in a well drain medium such as medium fir bark.

NamingEdit

Common name: Pad-Like Lip Miltonia

SynonymsEdit

  1. Oncidium phymatochilum Lindl. 1850-1
  2. Phymatochilum brasiliense Christenson 2005
