Miltonias are called the "Pansy Orchid" because their flowers resemble pansies. Miltonias come in most colors, and some have very interesting "masks" or "waterfalls" as a design in the center of the flower. They're also fragrant sometimes.

Preferences:


Humidity: Humididy is important to Miltonias - if they don't have enough, they'll get sunburn easier on the leaves, and leaf growth will be stunted.



Light and Air: Miltonias have smaller, more fragile leaves, so give them good ventilation to let air get in between the leaves. They like medium bright light - behind a white curtain by the window.

Watering: Miltonias need to be watered before they dry out or you'll see accordian like pleating on the leaves as the leaves grow out.

Temperature: Miltonias like about 50-65 night, 65-80 day.

Potting: Repot every year!
