    Nice flower. Not familiar with this species; the flower reminds me of Domingoa nodosa.

    Hi Glen... I do not remember where I got this plant. I usually do not grow Maxillaria's but it was a miniature so I thought I would give it a try... I believe I got this at one of our local Pleurothallis meetings plant redistribution raffles.
