Default Maxillaria variabilis 'Gold Country'

A recent acquisition from Gold Country Orchids at the Pacific Orchid Exposition. A nice dark clone of this variable species. The new flowers have a (light) fragrance of fresh hay while the old flowers have a odd scent of caramel with just a hint of hay mixed in. Grown with 16 (60) degree nights and around 19 (66) to 21 (70) degree days, depending on how sunny the day is.

Nice catch! I do love the gold tips on the segments setting off the deep red of the rest of the flower.

Hint: You can grow these a lot colder... mine (acclimated of course) live outside on my patio, so get whatever Mother Nature throws at them, including winter lows of 40 deg F or less.
