    Masdevallia paquishae is a small Masdevallia found in Ecuador and Peru. It grows there at altitudes between 1500m and 1750m. The leaves are about 7 cm long and the flower is about 3 cm. The plant is now hanging outside in a sheltered spot on an east wall. During the winter period it hangs in my orchidarium with temperate temperatures. She is now flowering for the first time with me. I hope the flowers will open up a little more.
