    My first Mas was shipped today from Seattle. I have a second on order which will ship after 2/18 also from Seattle.

    My first is; Mas erinacea.

    My second is: Mas decumana

    I can't wait to see these mini orchids!

    This is a pic of the Mas decumana from the sellers website. It looks like a nose with a mustache with handlebars to me!

    I found a seller who makes what they call "cool pots" they designed for Mas and other cool growing orchids. I received 2 of the pots and I expect to at least repot the mas decumana in one. The pots are supposed to keep the roots cooler than the temp.
    The mas erinacea is mounted on a stick so it will stay mounted.

    Hmmmmm- seems I have an opportunity for another since I have an idle, empty pot!!!!!!

    I ordered an erinacea which had better arrive soon. I am losing my patience. They blame it on the weather but doesn't winter come every year? Glad to see urs in great shape (and in ur home).

    You have nice collection there Harvey. I have 4 Masdevallias in my collection at the moment. Masd. Casa Anakar, Masd. Barleana, Masd. Sunset Jaguar, Masd. chaparensis x veitchiana. And another one is on its way, Masd. Yungasensis The last 4 are divisions I bought online and the ones I have at home became established and grow new leaves and roots I hope I will manage to make them bloom

    I wish you luck on the blooming!

    I am new to masd orchids (and orchids in general, but learning and doing quickly!) and hope to be able to keep them cool enough. I doubt they will ever see the outdoors here in Colorado. I'll be trying those cool pots I mentioned in another post to see if they help or not.

    I'll have the first one before weeks end and I can't wait to see the little bugger! I ordered it back in mid-December and have been waiting for the weather to cooperate for shipping.
