    Default Masdevalia help

    Hi Everyone,
    I've got some lovely Masdevalia plants.....but no flowers. They had lovely blooms when i got them, which quickly faded away. Since then, nothing. I've given them lots of humidity and out of the direct sun. Any suggestions?

    Hi Chuck. Are they staying cool? When was the last time they bloomed for you? Do the plants have any new growth? Do they stay damp - not wet, and get bright, indirect light? What type of masdevalia are you growing? (Sorry for all the questions, but more information should help you get the answer you are seeking.)

    Cheers,
    BD

    Hi Bruce,
    I'm upstairs now...not near my plants, but I'll certainly get the info to you tomorrow. I keep them damp, misting often, and I keep them on pebble trays. They get indirect light..but it's pretty bright in the afternoons. The plants look nice and healthy. Two of them (I have six) arrived with lovely blooms...but they dried up quite quickly and I haven't had any sign of any since then.
