Mazzies are good for providing this bright jazzy orange colour - a few similar hybrids or species all together provide a nice hot spot in a mixed orchid display. Not that they are all this colour of course, but I can't off-hand think of anything else which provides this colour so freely.
Love this. Awesome!!. Thanks for sharing Geoff
Very nice ensemble and great colour!
Love these but have assassinated every one I've had. They do well during the cooler months but once summer comes....
Btw, did tou know that masdevallia growers (and books on the subject) have their own specialist language in one important respect ? With most orchids, (UK) books, amd perhaps most books, write of cool, intermediate and wrm, as meaning say, 50, 55and 60 deg F. or 10, 12.5 and 15 C as the necessary minimum night temperature. But for Masdevallia growers, the figures are 5 deg. F cooler . so a cool growing Mazzie needs 45 deg. Min, and so on. They Also have a further. Classification - cold growing, meaning 40. probably the max temp. Is more important anyway, and as a further complication, I ignore everything said about different Mazzies, and buy them because I think I will like the flowers, without worrying whether they are cold or hot growing. And they all seem to grow together for me.
Gorgeous color and plant Geoff!
Beautiful! I so much wish my Masd's would bloom. They look happy, grow new leaves but so far have not bloomed. The leaves on yours look lighter green than mine. Maybe mine are not getting enough light.
