    Huge dark orange clone of M. hirtzii.
    I pick this one up from equegenera last year and it's the best of my three clones. P1020921.JPG

    Nice! I like it! What are your temperatures? I grow mine like 60-70, but I spoke to Andy and he said he lets his get down to 33!

    The intense orange against the green leaves is superb!

    I think hirtzii is one of those Masdevallias that is temp tolerant.
    I grow mine cool with winter nights sometimes in the mid fourty's
    but usually more like mid fifty's.
