    Default Masdevallia caesia help please...

    Hello everyone. Been a while since I posted and shared some photos. Well, I looked on here for general info on Masdevallia caesia and was unlucky or just blind... Thus I was wondering if any of you grow it as I have just inherited a sickly looking specimen and am wanting to give it a happy home. I believe it was grown warm so hence it's problems from the start. I am wanting to grow it with my other masdies outdoors in Melbourne Australia along with the others. At the moment we average lows of 8C up to a max of 14C, we did have one night drop to 3C!!! Ouch!
    So I wonder if this little guy may do well? I repotted it into a tree fern pot which hangs upside down and a new leaf has started to grow already. Any tips and advice would be great. Thank you all again.

    yea, he should be fine. I grow mine outside here, where we get similar temperatures. Just watch out for frosts and snails!
