Product info

The Maxillaria variabilis is found in the rain forests from Mexico up to Ecuador, where the orchid is capable of growing on earth, trees and rocks. Because the orchid is found at a great range of altitudes, it is capable of withstanding varied temperatures, between 14 and 30 degrees Celsius. The flowers can be yellow or chestnut and every color in between. The shape of the flower resembles the jaws of insects, which explains the name 'Maxillaria' (literally meaning 'jaw'). Flowers are 1 to 1,5 cm big. The narrow leafs can grow to be 15 to 25 cm tall.
