Jul. 25, 2015: It seemed like forever since we bought any new Masdevallias for our collection. In fact, the last time was way back in May last year with Masd. Circe (story at this post). This was because we accumulated so many at such a short amount of time only to lose most of them to the summer heat last year. Lehua Orchids has this special “closeout deal” for their Masdies so we’re giving it another shot with these plants.
This was a flower on our old plant that we have since lost (story of the plant told here).
