    First flowering for me and I like it. I recently received this in a trade, thanks Eric.

    The flowers average 1 inch across. The tallest pseudobulb + leaf is 7 inches. It is in a 4 inch plastic basket with cork pieces and a pad of sphagnum. I haven't detected a fragrance.

    Good to see it is happy! Mine price is covered with flowers....blooms a couple times a year once it gets bigger....which by the way won't take too long!

    What nice markings it has. I had the chance to visit Eric a few months ago when I gave a lecture to his society. He has a great collection of maxillarias as well as other things. All grown very well.

    Eric, today I found a flower on the Max. tenuibulba, too. I'll try to photograph it tomorrow. All of these small Maxillarias are great!
