    Love these! Can't wait for mine to bloom! It does smell a bit like tanning lotion as opposed to coconut cream pie as people say! Do you subject yours to cool temps at all?

    Very healthy plant. I like the leaves and pseudo-bulbs on the Maxillaria tenuifolia as well as the flowers. Someday this will I am sure be a 'Maximus Bloomer'. AL

    This year this plant was everywhere....haha....I got it in tampa florida beginning of last year. Lived there for 4 months. Then August last year came back to Massachusetts to grow by my window. Then December to Maine where I left it for 3 days in a 30 degree car, totally forgot...haha..Then back to Massachusetts... I was giving it full sun from 12 noon till dusk. Then opening the window at nights a little bit to drop the temps.....at this point temps would go from 50 nights to 75+ days for about two weeks....I had to stop tho...I was getting cold at night....hahahaa....This plant is a Gypsy as you can tell...haha...so if that doesnt help you beat the crap out of your orchids...then i dont know what else would....haha
