Plant Size  



Maxillaria (abbreviated Max.) spilotantha is found in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela in forests at elevations of 5,000 to 9,000 feet. This interesting species is a small sized, cool to warm growing epiphyte. This Maxillaria has two types of growth habit, some with pseudobulbs and some without, resembling a reed stem Epidendrum. Single, one-inch flowers bloom from the leaf axils in the spring. Flowers will bloom sequentially from the axils along the stem or pseudobulb. Max. spilotantha is a compact plant and a vigorous grower and will bloom in a 2-inch pot. They do well in shady conditions, high humidity, and good air circulation. Water and fertilize regularly during active growth, let dry slightly between watering. During winter, stop fertilizer and water less frequently; night time temperature should be approximately 55-60°F. Can be grown on a windowsill or under lights. Its small foot print makes it a great plant for growers with limited space. Recommended for the species collector, growers with limited space, and people who like cute things.
