Miltonia russelliana is an epiphytic orchid from the genus Miltonia.


Plants bloom from fall to winter with five to nine 5.75 cm wide flowers.


Plants are found in Brazil


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.
