Special Offering #1 Maxillaria tenuifolia *Coconut Orchid*
Maxillaria tenuifolia ‘Green Valley’
This species is famous for its luscious ‘Coconut Cream Pie’ fragrance. Starting in late winter and early spring plants will cover themselves in dozens of dark red blooms that will fill the room with this sweet, tropical scent. Flowers on this cultivar are the largest and darkest we have seen with heavy, long-lasting substance. This species will need to be cultivated in cool to intermediate (65-85 degrees) temperatures and bright, indirect light. As roots should not be allowed to dry out, we suggest watering 2-3 times per week while these are still snug in small pots.
We are offering very nice, well grown plants in 2.5" pots with sturdy bulbs and long grassy foliage. Plants are near flowering size and can bloom in the next 12-18 months.
These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. Because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.

(Seedlings are expected to bloom similar to photo above)
You can expect semi-compact to dwarf sized plants with spotted yellow blooms similar to the photo shown. The intensity of the freckles with vary but all should be colorful and unique. Suitable for mount or basket culture, and warmth tolerant. We are eagerly awaiting first flowers!
We have found that these prefer very well-draining containers so seedlings are now happily growing in 3" mesh baskets with chunky media. Plants are expected to reach flowering size within 2 years.
