Re: What's your plant of the moment?
Martin, nope, no need to have symbiotic fungi around. This one is easy in fact, but cannot take too much cold, say down to -5 C, and it is winter growing and flowering to boot. That said, there are many species in this genus, including some that grow in cold climates. Check out this site, it is the definitive place to get information about them on the web: http://www.ophrys-genus.be
Kev, yeah, they've been making those Miltonia crosses forever it seems. Pretty remarkable since in those days there was no asceptic technique developed yet - they were just sowed directly into the open environment! They are a bit garish for my tastes, but I do like the pastel colors of your plant very much.
There are nurseries in Europe that offer these for sale, and a number of species are cold hardy to at least -15 C, so see if you can score a few. All will need full sun conditions in your climate, just like Bletilla. An alpine flower show sounds great, so please do post pics of you trip.
