Maxillaria tenuifolia

In looking for space hogs in the greenhouse, there was no question about that was the worst. It was the three large Maxillaria tenuifolia plants. This week I took them apart, trying to keep divisions as large as possible. As it turned out, I was not able to get any large divisions, but there were several that were respectable.

This is the large mounted plant and the resulting divisions. I will pot them all and let them settle in for a month, then start selling them. The smaller ones will be on the $5 table I am still working on setting up.
