Hello everyone, I'm new to the orchid world and began keeping a few Pleurothallids in dart frog vivaria about 5 or so years ago. They never did well and always carried the stigma of finicky and temperamental, so I assumed it was typical. I'm in the amphibian conservation field and visited Panama in 2019 to assess some cloud forest sites for potential future translocations. This is where I caught myself looking for orchids as well as frogs! Upon return, I wanted to try my hand at keeping a few species I had seen in Panama, especially Masdevallia erinacea. That's grown over the past few years and now I keep a variety of intermediate Pleurothallids in a terrarium, mostly Masdevallia. The terrarium limits the species I keep since it doesn't provide as drastic of a night time drop and I also have to keep power outages in mind and not have such sensitive species that won't handle our summers without air conditioning for a day or three. Included are some pictures of my ever-growing collection and blooms I've gotten over the past two years.
