    Maxillaria (picta x tenuifolia)

    • Maxillaria tenuifolia

    Well established seedlings in 2" pots. 2 years from flowering size.

    I included pictures of both parents. The plant picture is representative of the seedlings we are shipping. I have no idea what the flowers are going to look or smell like but I have high hopes!

    We took the relatively small and amazingly fragrant (this is the "coconut cream pie orchid") Maxillaria tenuifolia and crossed it with the Maxillaria species that has some of the coolest looking flowers, M picta 'Vasher'. M picta is also fragrant and the flowers are about twice the size of M tenuifolia. So far, the stature and structure look more like M tenuifolia with long wispy leaves atop big, round bulbs. Get 'em while they are cheap!  

    Care: Bright indirect light, cool-warm temps, regular watering and fertilizer spring-fall and let dry between light waterings in the winter.
