Description

Maxillaria calantha is from Ecuador and Peru. In the wild this species inhabits montane cloud forest at elevations between 2,000 and 2,800 metres. Inflorescences measure 15cm and bear solitary flowers. The plant blooms in the spring and the flowers are large.

This plant is flowering size. Grow Maxillaria calantha in a pot with sphagnum moss as the media. Give plants shade with a little light and keep them well watered all year. I grow this plant sitting in a small amount of water. This species is suited to an intermediate greenhouse, temperatures between 12-16 degrees at night and rising to 26-30 during the day. However, given the elevations recorded, plants may grow successfully in warmer and cooler temperatures. This species benefits from a mister or hydrofogger nearby. If growing this species indoors make sure that there is enough humidity, there is a difference between day and night temperature, and that air circulation is sufficient but does not dry the air out around the plant.
