Masdevallia dynastes – 365 days of orchids – day 801


This wonderful miniature species is new to 365 days. Masdevallia dynastes is a very floriferous species endemic to cloud forests in Ecuador from 1400-2800m altitude.

We find the species enjoys a damp spot but not too shady where it then multiplies quickly. The leaves are 4cm long and the 1cm flowers are held clear of the leaves.

We grow the species in our Cool Americas section with a minimum of 12C
