Orchid Hybrid Bratonia Charles M. Fitch


Bratonia Charles M. Fitch (synonym: Miltassia Charles M. Fitch) is an epiphytic growing, intergeneric orchid hybrid, a crossing between the species orchids Brassia verrucosa (seed parent) and Miltonia spectabilis (pollen parent).

The tropical orchid hybrid has been registered with the Royal Horticultural Society in the year 1961 by C.M.Fitch. The spider-like, fragrant flowers reach a size of up to about 12 cm. Mature plants carry up to 8 spectacular, long-lasting flowers on a single inflorescence. The Bratonia Charles M. Fitch orchid hybrid is considered as easy to care, but needs high humidity. The tropical orchid requires intermediate to warm temperatures and medium amounts of light. Plant should be kept moist, but not wet to avoid root rot and should be cultivated in a well drained potting medium. Light should be increased during the winter rest to induce blooming. Bratonia (abbreviated Bratt.) is the nothogenus (hybrid genus) for intergeneric hybrids between the orchid genera Brassia and Miltonia. Bratonia hybrids are often named Miltassia (abbreviated Mtssa.), which is just accepted as a synonym.
