Humility check

While I was enjoying the success of the Degarmoara Winter Wonderland 'White Fairy' sprouting I got a humility check at the same time. Also under the bench was this Maxillaria endresii I got a year ago at POE.

This backbulb was a bonus that came with a plant of the same species. I think it is safe to say that this is dead.

The other plant is doing pretty well. This species is a hot growing tropical from Panama and not really the best fit for my environment. I have pretty much decided not to add more of these or to replace any that die.

I am expecting blooming in the next month or two. I have not bloomed it, but I bought it in bloom at the end of February.

There were a lot of flowers that are open all at once. Have I taken good enough care of the plant that it blooms? We shall see. The plant appears health enough and it developed new growth during the year.
