I have been trying to get this coconut orchid, Maxillaria tenufolia, to re-bloom for about two years.

It is such a healthy plant I just wouldn’t give up on it.

Then, I replanted it in the medium Orchiata mix, and guess what? It’s blooming!

Now I smell a little pina colada every time I walk by.

Now all of my orchids are either in the small or medium mix.

I also have another orchid (I’ve had it so long without it blooming that I don’t remember what type it is) this is also in medium Orchiata and now has a spike.

I’ll send along a picture of it when it’s in bloom.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for introducing me to Orchiata!
