    Cool Masdevallia herradurae

    Okay, this warm growing Masdevallia opened several flowers this morning. It has a few leaves with spots that I treated and so far it hasn't gotten any worse. I'm hoping it was just being moved into the greenhouse that caused the spots. All my new leaves are clear of the spots.

    I began researching the web and actually came up with a few that I liked. I have fallen in love with the ones grown up north and had wanted a few for a long time. I ordered from a couple places and of the four original plants, one died within a couple weeks. The other three hung on the shelves and pretty much didn't do anything but grow the first few months. Suddenly this one developed a bunch of spikes and after a few days realized they were budding. They have a reputation for not liking chemicals so I was hesitant to spray them with my regular mix and ended up with awful spots underneath the leaves. Once I began spraying, they began doing better. If you look around online you will be suprised at how many warm growing Masdevallia there actually are. They like it almost as wet as a vanda, and the sun of a phal. So I hang them underneath a shelf of vandas where it's shaded and gets really good air movement. They are very nice little plants...and fit in well between those big plants. lol

    Fascinating blooms and I agree with Ed as to what they look like. I knew there were a few warm growing Masdevallia's, but I did not know there were actually quite a few which could be grown warm. Nice going Connie. May your other Masdevallia's bloom soon. AL

    I grow all my Mazzies - a number which increases most times I visit a show - on a bench below a couple of lines if small vandaceous things, which get sprayed ,currently - mid-winter- 4 times a week, and they get the falling spray of rain water (no fertiliser ). If they don't look damp, they get a direct spray. No watering otherwise. And they Love that . I don't bother to look to see if they are technically cool or warm growing now. Of course it may be that some won't flower, but I always have several out, and some seem to be almost ever-blooming. But I only have the odd one or two on mounts, most are in bark .
