The first is more frequently called Milt. spectabilis var moreliana, so a
google search under that name will turn up more hits. McLellan's Botanicals
in the Salinas, California area used to have the Milt Honolulu, but I have
no idea how to contact them. Personally, I'd google them both and see what
turns up.

Miltonia spectabilis var. mooreliana (with double 'o') will give you
even more results since it is its official name.

No its not. I checked IPNI and it said var. morelliana. (but your where
right, it wasn't mooreliana either!) I don't remember I ever saw it
spelled like that, but a google on the net gave me plenty of resources
so it must be right.

Just because you can get a lot of hits off Google for a particular spelling
doesn't mean it's correct. It can simply mean there are a lot of people who
don't know the correct name or who can't spell. The former is frequent; the
latter, pathetically frequent. There are also those who don't care - even
more pathetic.

Hi Kay, Thanks for the heads up. I didn't mean to start a "name war".
Or conduct a spelling bee (see answers below) but I use Wildcatt & they
are alway correct (almost) LOL moreliana is correct as I see it. A
lot of names have been recently changed by the "taxidermists" LOL so
Milt. spectabilis is now distinctly different from Milt. moreliana. It
is interesting to me that you were the only one to answer my query,
while the rest launched into a spelling lesson. For that, I thank you.
Good growing, Bill

USENET rule #1. If you don't know troll.
USENET rule #2. If you are too polite to troll, flame spelling or grammar.

I hope you find the Honolulu. The one McLellan's Botanicals brought in for
AOS judging was huge. Alas, it was before we started the Pac Central web
page so I have no photos,

Good luck
