This is a wonderful miniature Maxillaria from Brazil. We’ve done a great deal of checking, and the current accepted name for this cutie is Maxillaria pumila, but this is confusing with regard to information on the internet. Base your purchase on our images and information! We’ve always grown them in unglazed terra cotta pots with great success, though they’d certainly do well mounted. We keep them in intermediate light with a low temperature of 55°F up to 95°F. Ours bloom reliably in the early spring and occasionally at other times in the year. As small and hidden as the flowers are, they have a surprisingly strong scent like cloves.
The blooming-sized division shown in Brenda’s hand is representative of what you’ll receive.
