    This plant is currently not available.

    Maxillaria schunkeana. Well-established blooming size division in a 2.25” pot.

    ​This beautiful miniature Maxillaria is one of the few orchids that produce "black" flowers. Not truly black, the small (about the size of a dime) flowers produce so much purple pigment that they appear black to the eye. The flowers emerge from new, mature pseudobulbs on short stems holding the flower at pseudobulb height.

    Care: Intermediate-warm temps, indirect light and regular watering year-round.
