    Default Maxillaria tenuifolia

    I'm very pleased with the growth of this plant in the past year. I've had it around 5 years. It bloomed for me for the first time 2 years ago with 2 blooms, last year 5 blooms, now this year around 15.

    Frequent watering in basket culture is probably the best way to go with this, and you clearly have mastered this species. In 2 or 3 years you will need heavier wires to hold it up.
