Maxillaria tenuifolia

Maxillaria tenuifolia

This gorgeous small orchid, Maxillaria tenuifolia, is a central America dweller where it is found growing most of the times a an epiphyte but often as a litophyte too. It has roundish pseudobulbs with very long and narrow leaves, letting us know it will most likely need bright light to bloom properly.

Care

I cultivate mine in a basket where it gets plenty of water and feed throught the growing season and short, but necessary, winter rest. And the best is yet to come! Maxillaria tenuifolia has the most astonishing perfume ever, a sweet, spreading coconut scent!
