Jun. 13, 2014: Big Oak Orchids made our Friday the 13th happy! We weren’t expecting the plants we recently won from eBay auctions until next week but here they are! I wonder if Big Oak Orchids already know us so well that he’s got the plants that we will likely want all packed and addressed to us the moment they put them up on eBay.
It’s a Masdie party!
Masd. polysticta alba
(picture from Internet) We got the white version of this Masdie species…
Masd. polysticta 3. Yes, the plant tag says it exactly that way, with the number “3”
(picture from Internet) The flowers of this Masd. polysticta is supposed to be the one with shorter caudae.
Masd. polysticta (yellow)
(picture from Internet) We also got the yellow form of Masd. polysticta. These are our first multi-floral Masdies so we went all out and got all the variants we can get.
(picture from Internet) I love the tubular Masdies which is why I’m so geeked we got this species.
(picture from Internet) This Masdevallia species’ flowers look like banana peels.
Dracula mopsus is the odd man out in this Masdevallia party.
(picture from Internet) We really wanted this Dracula since they look like little monsters.
