    I have been a Maxillaria fan for quite some time. I have 2 other very cool species in spike presently and can't wait until they bloom. I also have 2 new species coming from one of our wonderful forum members who picked them up for me at SBOS...I just need to get a stretch of warmer weather to have them shipped to me. I am also looking at 2 more species from a Brazillian vendor that is coming to Redlands. I just wish it wasn't such a large genus

    Sounds like you do have it pretty bad for the Maxillarias!

    I just have one happy tenuifolia right now...however I have dillonii, lutescens, and lankasteri on my list. It's too cold to ship to CO right now, so I'm just waiting...

    I guess I have about 40 species of Maxillaria, some can be large plants. I would consider dillonii a fairly large one

    40! Wow....

    I'm ok with an occasional large plant addition to my collection-I don't have a ton of room, but I'm not so into the tiny plants.

    when you look at the size of the genus, 40 looks small. Bulbos are where my real craziness is. I have over 150 species in that genus.

    It's all relative! A matter of perspective

    I only have about 60 plants total, most are catts. Haven't tried any of the bulbos yet. (Did I just say yet?)
