Also known as the Coconut Orchid, is a captivating orchid with an enchanting coconut fragrance that fills the air, particularly in the evening. Its petite star-shaped flowers, often in burgundy or brown hues with yellow accents, add tropical charm to indoor spaces. While its slender, green leaves are not the primary focus, they complement the vibrant blooms. This epiphytic orchid prefers bright, indirect light, high humidity, and consistent moisture. Maxillaria tenuifolia is prized among orchid enthusiasts for its unique aroma, making it a delightful addition to any orchid collection, infusing spaces with a hint of the tropics.
