    Orchid id help

    Hi, I bought this orchid today and its label says that it's a cambria but to me it looks like a miltonia. Help please

    If you got it from a BBS, all bets are off as to whether it was labeled correctly. That said, it could very well be a Cambria. Since Cambria are intergeneric hybrids with Miltomia in their background, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that this particular one's traits are simply strongly influenced by the Miltonia genetics.

    Thanks for your answer. I'm not from the US so I don't know what a bbs is. How would you treat this orchid? Just like other cambrias?

    BBS = big box store - basically any large chain store, rather than a dedicated orchid shop.

    Yes ... Brighter light than Phalanopsis but less than the high light some of the Cattleyas require, and intermediate temperatures.
