Description

Maxillaria porrecta is a species from central and south America. In the wild this species inhabits montane cloud forest at elevations between 1,500 and 2,000 metres. Inflorescences measure 12cm and bear solitary flowers. Plants blooms in the spring.

This plant is flowering size. Grow Maxillaria porrecta on a broad mount or in a pot with sphagnum moss as the media. Give plants moderate shade with a little light and keep them well watered all year. I grow my plants sitting in a small amount of water. This species is suited to an intermediate greenhouse, temperatures above 14 degrees at night and rising to 27 during the day. However, given the elevations recorded, plants may grow successfully in 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.
