Though I don't particularly like miltonias, I was inclined to buy myself two plants as I couldn't resist the seller's inducement to purchase! I sure have a soft heart for plants, I guess.
This plant was bought before CNY last year. I was lured by its sweet scent.
This season it rebloomed; however, the scent disappeared. I really don't know why.
Then I got the second plant some time after the CNY, on a discount. This plant was rather "showy" in its pattern but, again, I got lured by its price. It is now reblooming.
Recently I was given two more miltonias by a friend. She complained that she couldn't grow them as well as I could. When I repotted them two days ago, I understood why the plants didn't grow well at the friend's: they seemed not to like the medium they were in.
So I changed their medium to pine bark, which I have been using for the other two miltonias. Now they are in convalescence on the windowsill.
I hope they will bloom for me next CNY.
