365 days of orchids – day 643 – Masdevallia mystica

This wonderful small growing Masdevallia flowers on and off throughout the year. It is possibly a natural hybrid and is found in Colombian cloud forest. One parent is probably Masdevallia filaria that it grows amongst but the other possible parent is a mystery – hence the name.

We grow this species in baskets, mounted and in pots in Cool Americas and when kept cool and damp rewards us with vigorous growth and regular flowering.
