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.

why use 'smooth' wood?



Hello Ozpaph, I had no preference. This is how it came from the vendor. Lately I have seen more smoothed wood mounts on eBay.

From an aesthetic point of view I prefer cork. The texture of cork is very appealing.

Interesting. I haven't tried growing Maxillarias mounted.



Dot, this is the second mounted Maxillaria I own—the other one is Maxillaria uncata. All my other Maxillaria are growing in net pots in sphagnum moss.

Mine are all in net pots lined with moss. They are doing fine, but I may have to try a piece of one mounted.
