    Default Maxillaria coccinea.

    Ornithidium sopronites now. First flowering of a seedling I bought in the summer ;now moved from the original 2inch net pot to a 3 or 4 inch plastic basket ( one of those octagonal jobs) since it likes my conditions and treatment so much ; it ois now up to no less than six new growths .
    The same colour ( I think I would call it vermilion ? ) as the Max.sophronites I posted on - I think it was page 6 - of the Tiny orchids thread , but quite a different flower shape. I like this plant.
    However the flower shape here is much more typically Maxillaria than the M.sophronites, I think - for example it reminds me of other maxillarias I have seen and grown in the past - that large-floweerd one - M grandiflora ? in particular.

    I have just learnt that this is now Ornithidium sopronites after some substantial revision of the genus Maxillaria.

    Love the red, sparkly blooms. Wish the blooms were larger like they appear in your close up photo.

    Cheers,
