Maxillaria tenuifolia is found in Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Niacaragua and Costa Rica on trees in open or dense forests at low elevations up to 1500 meters, as a medium sized, to cool growing, solitary leafed epiphyte or occasional terrestrial with an ascending rhizome that is completely enveloped by scarious, imbricating, nonfoliaceous bracts with oblong-elliptic to oblong-obovate, compressed pseudobulbs with a single apical, linear, attenuate leaf that blooms in spring and summer on a 5cm long, single flowered inflorescence arising on a mature pseudobulb with scarious, basal bracts and the flower held at mid leaf height. Often called the Coconut Orchid, named for it's strong coconut scent, it grows well as a mount on tree fern and after blooming needs a semi-dry rest through the winter months.
