    Default Maxillaria tenuifolia

    It seems that I am not getting the bloom count I had last year but still very happy! I will be putting this into a hanging basket after the blooms end.

    Cool. I'm still waiting for the first blooms on mine which I have had for 3 full years!

    It's still at the babysitters. It hung for 2.5 years in front of west facing window and spent last summer outside. I moved it under lights when it came back indoors. Then to the GH babysitter for my foot surgery.

    There you go! You're good at blooming them but I'm good at killing them.

    Thanks Sriram! Like the idiot I am sometimes I tripped over one of my light stands over the weekend and it broke all 5 bulbs that were inside, the light I used is a replacement for now is not as bright so I think that is the reason for the darker colors.
