After a long, snowy winter, there's nothing happier than the friendly faces of violas and pansies in the garden (if the deer don't eat them). Safe indoors, the same is true of Miltonia or pansy orchids — but no deer. Unlike most orchids, the large flowers of pansy orchids have flat faces and markings like their namesake. The lily-type leaves and multiple flower stems grow from a water-storing pseudo-bulb. Native to cool areas of Central America, they thrive with humidity, low to medium light intensity and cool nighttime temperatures often found in an east-facing bay window. Under brighter light, take care to prevent leaf sunburn in the summer. Keep soil slightly moist or leaves will grow out pleated like an accordion.
