Matsui Miltonia Orchids
With tons of gorgeous pansy-like flowers that bloom for six weeks or more, Matsui Miltonias (also called Miltoniopsis) are a long-lasting "orchid bouquet."
The waterfall varieties of our Miltonia, like the ones pictured, are consumer favorites. The pink variety below, originally named “Pink Lemonade,” was dedicated and renamed for Andy’s wife, Mary, in honor of her 80th birthday. A renowned Japanese tea ceremony instructor, she is known to her students as Soyo Matsui, hence the plant's new name, "Soyo."
Matsui Nursery was the first grower to offer Miltonias for retail sale. Matsui Miltonias produce multiple beautiful, large, fragrant blooms and are some of the biggest Miltonia orchid plants available in the industry. Unusual to orchids, about 80% of our Miltonia varieties are fragrant, with a scent similar to a rose's. Our "Pink Lemonade" variety is strongly fragranced, while our white has the lightest fragrance. At certain times of the day, usually morning or afternoon, some Miltonias that seem barely scented can give off a heavy fragrance.
I'm in love with my miltonia orchid. I can't wait to do a watercolor painting of it...Bliss..!
They do best in bright, indirect light indoors in your home or office and moderate room temperatures. Found in the Andes in nature, Miltonias are considered cool-weather orchids that like cool to and moderate room temperatures and to be indoors in bright, indirect light. They like to get almost dry between waterings, so expect to water them every 10–15 days. Their flowers last for several weeks, just deadhead spent blooms.
