Watering- Depending upon the temperature, Miltonias should be watered twice a week. During the summer, the plants may need to be watered every 2-3 days. Miltonias prefer to be kept on moist side, but does not want its potting media soggy. Do not leave the plant in standing water. We suggest watering in the early morning, so that the foliage will be dry by nightfall.
Humidity- Miltonias require about 50 to 65% humidity. Humidity Trays will probably help Miltonias grown in the house. Increase the humidity to help reduce the stress on the plants when the temperature and lighting intensity increases during the summer months. We suggest daily misting of the foilage to help keep the plant nice and lush.
Fertilize- We suggest fertilizing the miltonia with a half-strength, balanced fertilizer (20-20-20 or 15-15-15, etc) every two weeks (twice a month). This can be reduced by half in winter months when leass sun light is available. A 10-30-20 blossom-booster formulation is beneficial in early spring when plants approach their flowering period.
Potting- Miltonias must be grown in fine orchid bark or sphagnum moss. The best time to re-pot the miltonia is usually after the plant blooms. Miltonias should be repotted once every two years.
