    Hi everybody,
    I bought this orchid this weekend on a hardware store... it was not labelled right.
    I think it is a Maxillaria acuminata.. maybe? or Maxillaria friedrichsthalii?

    Hi Jairo.

    Your photos look to me to be closest to Maxillaria friedrichsthalii.

    Max. acuminata
    has long slender peduncles, which are completely sheathed by brown bracts.
