    This is a miniature sized Maxillaria species that grows in cool to warm, wet to seasonally dry forests in South America. I keep it pretty moist at all times, but not soaking wet. It seems to do well for me in intermediate conditions with constant airflow. The flower is about the size of a pencil eraser.
