Buy Miltoniopsis 'Herralexandre' pansy orchid ( syn. Miltoniopsis Herr Alexander ): flowers spread a mild honey scent on a hot summer's day.

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: these plants do not need to grow in compost, but if potting up, use a specialist orchid compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 65cm (+ or - 10% including the pot)
  • Number of stems: 2 flower stems
  • Pot cover: choose a 12.5cm orchid pot cover to give a good fit over the pot.

    This gorgeous pansy orchid has impressively large (up to 10cm across) pure white blooms, each with a yellow and purple eye. The flowers also have a light honey perfume, which becomes more noticeable on a hot summers day. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water weekly by sitting the pot in a tray of water (or the kitchen sink) for 15 minutes so it can soak up as much as they like, then leave it to drain throughly before moving it back into position. Maintain temperatures around 15-24°C and keep them in a bright spot with protection from direct sunshine during spring and summer. Don't worry if the roots grow outside the pot. In their native environment, they grow in the crooks of branches, and use these aerial roots to absorb water from the air. They do not mind being overcrowded in their pots, so you only need to repot them when the growth starts to suffer.

Beautiful orchid and smells incredible

5

I am a complete rookie orchid carer, and I was a little hesitant as I know some orchids are quite delicate. I received this beautiful plant last year with several flower stalks in full bloom. The plant was very healthy on arrival and despite my rookie green-fingers, it survived the winter and started flowering again a few weeks ago. I water it irregularly and spray it weekly with orchid mist. I haven't repotted it yet, but will look to do so once the flowers have finished this year. The flowers smell incredible and my kitchen is filled with their sweet aroma each morning - they remind me of funny little faces with sunglasses and moustaches. In summary, I am absolutely delighted with this orchid - both in quality on arrival and continuing blooms.

Why are the flowers on my Miltonia orchid are going brown on edges of the 3 flowers?

Hello, It may be that the flowers are dying back naturally, but it may also be a sign that the flowers are getting scorched. The usual culprits for this are too much direct sun or heat.

Which house plants you choose should depend on the environment you intend to keep them in, the space available, how much time you can spend preening them as well as your personal preference. For me, foliage house plants are the ticket, because they provid
