    My new improved cool growing setup is working well enough that I have some things flourishing and blooming for the first time. This Maxillaria, for one. Got this division a few years ago after seeing a pic of the parent plant in bloom, The pic showed a solid yellow flower, described as 3-4". These flowers are 2.5", and have red in them as well. Also the pic showed very ruffled edges to the flowers. Not so much here. I presume the differences are cultural. The big question is: who is this? Plant about 24" tall. Any ideas??
