    This is a small cool growing Maxillaria from Columbia. It reportedly is a spring bloomer but mine blooms intermittently from spring through fall.

    What an odd bloom. I really like the perfect shape of the bloom!

    Cheers,

    Very unusual, it looks like it has been sprinkled with powdered sugar!

    It's shine from the waxiness, right? If it is white, well, that's unusual!

    guess you're doing something it really likes then.

    Sweet bloom, reminds me of Cymbidiums... wonder what would happen if you try and cross em!

    It shines from the flash reflection. It isn't really waxy, the cell surface on the sepals is kind of faceted and semi translucent.

    Maxillaria and Cymbidium will cross. The hybrid of this cross is called Maxidium (Mxd.). There is a white Cym about to come into bloom n the greenhouse and I have a large-flowered Maxillaria about to bloom. I may try that cross but this Maxillaria is very small flowered so I don't think I would use it in a cross.

    Well you could get lucky and perhaps wind up with Cym sized flowers on a small [I'm assuming this is a lil feller] plant...
