New Maxillaria picta specimen plant in bloom

Maxillaria picta - Photo by Richard LindbergMaxillaria picta grows in Brazil and Argentina. It is a high light cool to warm growing plant, blooming in winter and spring.

Someone brought in plants from their mother's greenhouse. I would have bought more than just this one but I wasn't quick enough.

This great specimen is in a 9-inch pot. The tag has a repot date in 2004 and looks as if it has not been turned since. There are a bunch of flowers down under the leaves.

The plant looks healthy and I didn't spot any bugs. There is new growth now and I am planning on taking it apart very soon. I am a sucker for this type of plant. That is how the greenhouse got so full.
