Maxillaria Tenuifolia

 I purchased this Maxillaria Tenuifolia from eBay vendor orchidtn and it was delivered on June 11th.  It was advertised as a full pot orchid, and was all of that:  extremely overgrown in a four inch pot.  I had no chance of getting it into a 5.5″ pot, and had to settle on one of my bigger pots, which it filled.  It was in bloom (and in fragrance) when I got it.

My eyes were bigger than my stomach (as my father would say) on this one.  I will probably have to divide it next year — probably making at least four 4″ pot versions.
