For sale are “Coconut Orchids” in sturdy high quality 4” net pots.

Scientific name Maxillaria tenuifolia, this species originates from Mexico and Nicaragua. They are easy enough for a beginner to grow. These plants grow quickly and can be gradually repotted into larger containers to become an impressive specimen plant.

Under the right conditions these plants become covered with gorgeous red and white speckled flowers. The flowers produce a highly aromatic coconut aroma.

Light: bright, indirect light.
Water: consistently moist. Allow to dry out slightly between waterings and then thoroughly drench it. The firm green pseudobulbs will begin to shrivel if the plant isn’t getting enough water. A good soak will plump them back up.
Soil: coarse orchid mix
Humidity: these plants do best under high humidity. If your house is dry you could mist them periodically as well as keep it on a tray filled with pebbles or marbles. Allow water to run off and stay in the dish of pebbles to naturally raise the humidity around the plant.
