Maxillaria aff. subulata - Pine Needle Orchid
This orchid species is potentially undescribed, but it looks most similar to Maxillaria subulata, giving it the designation "aff. subulata." The needle-like leaves of this orchid are stiff and succulent, and the pseudobulbs are deeply ridged. This plant grows wild in Brazil, and has small yellowish blooms with red centers.
• Light: Bright, indirect light. Some direct lightokay.
• Water: Prefers frequent waterings (every 1-2 days) in the summer, and slightly less frequent waterings (every 2-4 days) in the winter. Soak orchids in room-temperature water or run water over the roots until fully saturated.
• Considerations: This plant typically blooms in the spring and likes a warm environment.
WHAT TO EXPECT

I love it! Such a delightful plant. I love these miniature orchids. Arrived well packed, arrived healthy and not even one needle was bent. Very different orchid. Hats off to Pistils for a great plant. It is doing great!
