Maxillaria sp. aff. minuta - Hedgehog Orchid
This possibly undescribed orchid grows tight clusters of short, terete leaves, giving the plant a spikey hedgehog appearance. Maxillaria sp. aff. minuta grows small, dark red blooms close to the base of the leaves. Native to parts of Brazil, this plant's unusual appearance is the perfect way to bring the tropics indoors.
• Light: Bright, indirect light. Some direct light okay.
• 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 is free-flowering throughout the year.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each mount measures approximately 5" long with a heavy wire hook. No two pieces are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality - expect this natural variation from the photos.
