    Default My Max tenuifolia

    Unlike the other pics I've seen, the flower on mine seems to remain "cuppy" Cute all the same and does have a coconut/suntan lotion fragrance. The lip is more yellow than it appears here.





    Much to my surprise, I discovered another definite bud today and a growth I'm pretty sure is yet another bud.

    [Forgive the twist tie -- I'm trying to guide an errant root to grow back into the moss.]

    very nice and I like the mount too but that plant is going to outgrow that mount very quickly. I can't wait for mine to bloom.
