More info

The splendid Miltoniopsis orchid, also known as Orchidea Pansé for its resemblance to pansies, includes various species, all of them characterised by bright colours and interesting chromatic contrasts. Miltoniopsis looks different to Miltonia, because of some peculiar features, like the presence of one leaf instead of two at the top of the pseudo-bulb. But what strongly differentiates these two types of orchids are their different vegetative traits, which reflect the different climates of their counties of origin. Whist Miltonias come from Brazil and love hot weather, Miltoniopsis come from the mountainous areas of South America and hence need completely different maintenance, to guarantee the right temperature conditions. Specifically, they should be kept at a temperature of about 15°C. ensuring the right temperature range between night and day, to promote blooming. They love light but not the direct sun light and they need a humid environment. Because of this, they should never be left with no water, but making sure to avoid waterlogging in the substratum, which should be made of a mix of cortex and pearlite. A piece of advice: if kept indoors, make sure the radiators are equipped with humidifiers.
