    Default Maxillaria dillonii

    Found in Peru in wet montane forests at elevations around 800 meters. I grow it on the bright side. It has wonderfully fragrant flowers that are about 3.5" high. The plant is fairly large, p-bulbs and single terminal leaf topping out at about 18 inches.

    Why do so many of the nice flowers have to be on large plants? *pout*

    Lovely Ron. Being so far north, how do you protect your chids in winter.

    I grow the majority of my chids in a greenhouse. Except for The cool, dry, bright winter resters are in a greenhouse window over the kitchen sink and a few chids live in front of a west slider in my sunroom

    Hi Ron, I see it is an old thread. I have Maxillaria callichroma. Do you grow that? I was wondering if it is quite similar to Max dillonii and what the differences would be. Hard to tell from the spotty online references. I am considering purchasing M. dillonii but I would not want to have an almost duplicate of Max. callichroma.


    I just repotted my Maxillaria callichroma. It had a ton of fine roots coming out of a net pot. It made me wonder if it grows as a terrestrial in nature.

    I haven't grown callichroma but I see that it does grow on wet clay banks
