Maxillaria camaridii

This is a recent acquisition from Kawamoto, so I can’t take credit for this bloom.  It’s smells wonderful, but not overly cloying.  I can smell it from a few feet away, but it doesn’t fill an entire room with its scent.  I’m not positive about culture just yet, but I would think it’s one that isn’t going to have fits if it’s overwatered.  Although I don’t have many Maxillarias, the ones I do have seem to prefer what I consider to be a lot of water — compared to a Cattleya, anyway, although they don’t seem to need to sit in like Phaiuses or Phragmipediums.
