    Default Masdevallia cyclotega

    M. cyclotega was first collected by Jorge Meza above Huasahuasi, Peru, in 1978. He found it on the lower, mossy branches of trees and also terrestrially in the thick, but loose layers of shaded mossy humus in the high, forested, fog-enshrouded mountains at elevations of 3000-3500m.

    Cultivation of this species requires a damp, cool, shady place with adequate air movement.

    Plant size 15-18cm. The flowers are 2.5cm wide and 3.5cm tall. Tails 2.5-3cm.

    Well this is one I'll never be growing based on its requirements. Shame too. Lovely flower, Thomas! (And pics as well.) Glad you are able to grow plants like this, otherwise I'd never have the pleasure of seeing them.
