    Neat. The flowers almost look like those of the Disa genus.

    I love this one, and am soon adding it to the collection. Thanks for the titillating...

    How are you growing this one Tom? I am growing quite a few Maxillaria's these days but have just killed another one of these.

    JonP, it is in basket with osmunda + some moss. 55-75F, bright light(2000-2200FC), keep it moist but letting it slightly dry out between waterings during the winter months can be benefitial.

    Let me know if you want to try it again.

    I don't think I can keep it cool enough. Maybe I should try it outside most of the year...
    If you have a piece to spare, I would be glad to trade for it. I'll send you a pm...
