    A warm to intermediate growing species from Colombia, Venezuela and perhaps even as far down as in northwestern Brazil. It does not seem to have no objection to cooler temperatures either however, I grow it in the cool viv, in a mesh pot with EpiWeb substrate, medium/low light, evenly moist and high RH.

    Very nice Karma! I'm always looking for warm/intermediate Masdevallias.
