New Orchid: Miltassia Cairus ‘New River’

I picked this up today (Over an Oncidium Sweet Sugar ‘Million Dollars’ and two others that were quickly ruled out) and I’m pretty excited about it. On my wishlist is another Miltassia (Mtssa. Shelob ‘Tolkein’ AM/AOS, ‘Webmaster’ or ‘Okika’ with its variegated leaves or probably any other cross I find) so it’ll be nice before I try ordering a pricier orchid online to see if I can keep a Miltassia alive and better yet re-bloom one.

It’s a nice dark purple with some subtle spotting that might remind someone of a Rorschach test, this picture, however, is right out of Freud.
