    Default Masd. blooms not opening?

    Hello all,
    One of my Masdevillias (Masd. Dawn Glow) throws blooms like crazy, but most do not open all the way, or sometimes they don't open at all. The ones that do not open do appear to have the same color and substance as the ones that do open, it's just they don't open. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

    Thank you...

    Low humidity is probably the problem. Raise your humidity.
