365 days of orchids – day 387 – Masdevallia polysticta ‘yellow’

On day 337 we brought you Masdevallia polysticta ‘blue’ and today we have a yellow clone of this variable and small growing species. Native to cool cloud forests in Ecuador and Peru from 1600 to 3000m altitude the species enjoys cool damp conditions and these are shown in the moss that has grown naturally on this plant’s pot.

As you can see there is a small restrepia that has grown there too – a rather nice ‘weed’.
