Miltoniopsis Cherry Red x Jonora?

Post by Sheepkeepe » Tue, 27 May 2003 07:41:51



I reciently bought a nice little milt. from a reputable distributer.  It is
labled Milt. Hajime Ono, which apears to be the grower's name.  On his site,
http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/Vines/7765/ono2.html is a photo of a
Miltoniopsis Cherry Red x Jonora that is the exact twin of the one I have.
Does anyone know anything more about this plant?

Second question.  This is my first milt.  There are several culture sheets
out there; the one at http://miltoniopsis.com/cult.htm is enough to scare
one away.  Is this excessive, or not?

The culture sheet definitely would make you think twice about milts, but he
is a breeder so we had better take notes. I have a few of these, should
bloom this year,  guess I should switch to rain water, what about a pur
filter?  I have a temperature swing up here in the mountains so no problem
there.

A guest speaker at one of our OS meetings reinterated that the milts don't
like a lot of fertilizer. I think that was what was turning the leaf tips
brown, I havent seen any brown leaves since I backed off with the feedings.
This article states 1/4 strength, higher in nitrogen- I'm going to give it a
shot. I get new leaves, and maybe a spike is peeking- or a wrinkled leaf,
not sure yet- i can't wait to finally see my milt "RED KNIGHT" in person

Milt. Hajime Ono is a legitimate name. It is Milt Martin Orenstein X
Milt Pearl Ono.
While your plant may look just like the picture of Miltoniopsis Cherry
Red x Jonora, I think you should trust your label.

I have Milt. Hajime Ono which does not look like that picture but when I
bought it there was an example of the plant that looked like that picture,
there was also one that looked like the one I got.  Unless you have a clone
each orchid grown from that cross may look like either parent or a
combination of each.  I agree with Steve that it is a good idea to rely on
the grower's label..

Thanks guys.  I'll pit up a picture on ABPO as soon as life settles a
little.  In my business, hollidays aren't.
