    Maxillaria nardoides

    Here is a small Maxillaria mounted on 3”x5” wood mount. Close up of the bulbs. At one time this plant was named “Christonella”. This plant is grown in bright shade, warm to hot. It needs to be consistently hydrated allowing to dry out between watering. Plenty of fresh, moving air.

    A Gift. Barbosella australis

    A gift from Tom-DE by Matt Woelfsen, on Flickr I was totally surprised and pleased to get this unusual plant. It comes from southern Brasil. It is part of the Masdivalia tribe. From my research on the Interweb, it is a cool grower. I think it'll be growing in a terrarium.
