365 days of orchids – day 727 – Masdevallia gariae

For Christmas Eve we have a delightful little masdevallia endemic to Venezuela.

Another new species for 365 days this species grows at elevations from 1200 to 1500m in coastal forests where it experiences evenly cool and wet conditions throughout the year.

We grow plants in pots and baskets in our Cool Americas section where it grows glossy 6cm leaves and the dramatically striped 1cm flowers on upright 5cm stems that look at you and demand a close inspection.
