Maxillaria tenuifolia

Maxillaria tenuifolia - Flower photo by Richard LindbergMaxillaria tenuifolia - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI have several Maxillaria tenuifolia plants. Four of them are large and the rest are growing divisions. The one that is growing best is the most wet and most hot. I was surprised about how much water the like.

Maxillaria tenuifolia grows in Mexico and northern Central America. It is cool to hot growing and very fragrant. The genus Maxillaria (Max) contains 650 some species spread throughout the tropical and sub-tropical Americas. They have a single flower. Generally warm to hot growing.
