    Hi Mari-Lou--

    I do not grow maxillarias, but I believe they are similar to oncidiums in terms of preferences. I did look yours up...what a cutie! Your best bet is probably googling maxillaria culture. Good luck!

    Welcome, Mari-Lou! Wow - sounds like you have quite the set up. I think your new Maxillaria sophronitis will like bright light and lots of moisture. Can't wait to see pictures of the little darling!
