    Default Masd. Pixie Shadow

    I am sure there are other images of this one on here somewhere, but I thought I would share it with everyone again. There are several spikes (as per usual with the little one). This bloom was opened so I snapped this closeup.

    It is a successive bloomer. It will have blooms from now through the early part of the summer. It only stops when it gets hot. We have to grow it near the kool-cell or it will just melt. I have never sniffed it for fragrance. I was not aware that masds were fragrant. LOL. I will stick my nose up to it next time I am in the gh and see.

    "It only stops when it gets hot."
    So it should bloom all year round in the UK then!

    WOW!

    It looks so healthy and robust, Bruce. I've never tried growing these as I hear they are tempemental. I'm guessing it would be happy next to my Miltoniopsis, no?

    We grow only one milt and this little one grows about a foot away from her on the same bench right against the kool-cell vents.
