Maxillaria tenuifolia

In honor of the the thousandth blog post I will give away five orchids today. This is the fourth of five post that will be spaced through the day with a free orchid in each post.

Maxillaria tenuifolia - Flower photo by Richard LindbergMediocalcar decoratum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThis one is a 3-pseudobulb lead division of Maxillaria tenuifolia. This species 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.

The rules are simple: add a comment claiming it and them go to this page to get my direct email address so we can work out the details. Anybody who wants it can have it, no first-time restriction today. Continental US only please. First comment wins. I will pay the postage.

This will come bare-root. It will do best potted but can also be mounted.

The next post will be in a couple of hours.
