Second chance Masdevallia

on

Apr. 2, 2015: Larry dropped by Yvonne’s (Michigan Orchid Society) place after work to pick up some Paph. amabile pollen to pass on to Jack (Saginaw Valley Orchid Society). During the visit, Yvonne gave us a Masdevallia plant (THANKS, YVONNE!). We’ve been resisting the urge to buy any more Masdies since we’ve lost so many in the past year while we were figuring out our growning environment. I’ve never lost appreciation of the beauty of Masdevallia flowers tho! Hopefully we get lucky with this new plant and be able to rebuild our Masdevallia collection.
