    Default Masdevallia floribunda

    Lives up to its name - has, or has had, or will have, in the period from about mid September to the end of this month, about 25-30 flowers. ( I did count them, but have done half a dozen things since then, and forget the exact number).
    It lives in this 2 and a half inch pot - maybe I'll give it a 3 inch when I repot, maybe in the Spring. Loves the gentle downfall of moist air, when I spray the hanging plants above it - Aerangis in this case, since this is on the shadier side of my greenhouse.

    I have a hybrid Masd. of which floribunda is one of the parents. One of the only masdies I've ever been able to get to bloom.
