    Masdevallia garciae is a small orchid that blooms beautifully now, and is native to the coastal regions of Venezuela. It occurs at altitudes of 1200 to 1500 metres in rainforests. The flowers are about one centimetre small. It also smells deliciously of honey. Almost intoxicating. It flowers with me from August to October/November.
    It grows at medium heights. Therefore, I cultivate it at a moderate temperature.

    That is a very well grown plant. I’m a sucker for yellow. Thank you for describing the scent.
