    Default Maxillaria tenuifolia

    The frst of mine to bloom this year. I have a couple of different color forms of this coconut-fragrance species that hails from Mexico to Honduras. Many people find this Maxillaria easy to grow, not I.

    Well done Ron. I feel like I am the only person on the forum whose Max Tenuifolia hasn't bloomed yet this year ... Mine is taking its time, that's what it is ....

    Love this plant. Lambe, mine didn't bloom either, but it had a rough winter inside without enough light. It just now starting to put out new growth and recoup.

    Ron that is a very nice flower on yours!

    Good job, Ron! It's such a great species too.

    Mine are growing happily but are not budding either. I'm still hopeful though.

    Very nice. I just got my first one at the SWROGA show. It was already in bloom, so I don't count that as my bloom. It does smell so wonderful. Cin (Molly Taco) has an amazing one she posted on here somewhere.

    Cheers,
