Default Black Maxillaria schunkeana 'Pérola Negra'

It doesn't stop blooming!! If memory serves me well, I posted this plant in March, but at that ocasion it was giving flower since january. In all this time not a single day passed without flowers on this plant!

Not everybody likes blackish orchids, Dorothy, but this one is super, at least to my taste. This flower is most commonly found in dark brownish-wine color, but some are almost black. The plant is short and keeps giving flowers for more than 7-8months.

Wow! That is a really black orchid. Is it one of the cool growing Maxillarias? Also, is there a smell?

Intermediate temps are the best for this species, Steve. No smell.
