    Is this a warm or cool growing orchid?

    I grow it intermediate. Most Masd are cooler growing cloud forest species

    It is beautiful, so pure looking. I really want a pure white one. I like the idea that it blooms a lot.

    I have just started to grow Masdevilla again, after killing two a couple of years ago. I was growing them too warm. The one that really hurt was Machu Picchu, it had a special meaning for me because I had been there.

    I have a couple on my wish list now, a pure white one, a pink one, and a pink /or red stripe one. I hope I can find those before our cold weather sets in.....it's almost here.

    I read about a couple growers growing them in S/H. It sounds interesting but I'm afraid to try it. Have you grown any in S/H?

    I may be sorry, but I'm going to try one in S/H, possibly 2 for comparison. I like growing in clear plastic containers, in S/H. I know for sure when to water, and I can watch the root activity. Wish me luck. I'll report in 6 months. If they survive..............
