    Looks like it will be a good year for Masdevallia ignea...first blooms are now starting to open. It’s strange though that the smaller, recent divisions (such as these) are about a week or two ahead of the mother plants.

    And mine to! As it happens, this was the first Masdi I ever got! My daughters bought it for me, so of course, that's something special to me.

    Hi Marni, that is ‘Olga Lucia’ which in Colombia they refer to as a xanthina form. Sometimes it does appear to be more yellow, but not what we usually refer to as xanthina.
