Introducing the Maxillaria lineolata, a charming orchid native to the lush landscapes of Mexico and Central America. These delightful plants add a touch of exotic beauty to any space with their unique characteristics and stunning blooms.

However, it's essential to provide the right care to ensure their health and longevity. Keep in mind our experience with a big plant: maintaining adequate moisture is crucial, especially during excessively hot summers. Consider planting Maxillaria lineolata in a wooden basket, allowing for proper drainage and a natural aesthetic appeal.

These orchids thrive in moderate shade, mimicking their natural habitat in dense humid forests. Providing ample water during the growing season is essential for their well-being. However, as they mature, it's advisable to lessen watering to prevent issues like root rot.

Maxillaria lineolata is a small to medium-sized orchid, perfect for those seeking a manageable yet rewarding plant to cultivate. Their slender, erect inflorescence can reach up to 18 inches (45 cm) in length, showcasing a single, striking yellow flower adorned with red stripes. The flower, measuring 1 inch (2.5 cm) across, is not only visually captivating but also cleverly designed to attract pollinators.

Interestingly, Maxillaria lineolata releases a pheromone that mimics female bees, tricking male bees into believing they have found a mate. As the bees attempt to couple with the flower, they inadvertently pollinate it, contributing to the orchid's reproductive cycle.

For optimal growth and blooming, ensure your Maxillaria lineolata receives the right conditions: moderate shade, proper watering, and occasional fertilization. With the right care, these enchanting orchids will reward you with their exquisite blooms, bringing a touch of the tropical wilderness into your home.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Maxillaria lineolata is a versatile orchid that blooms off and on throughout the year, making it a delightful addition to your indoor garden. With its ease of cultivation, even beginners can enjoy the beauty of these orchids without much fuss.
