    A beautiful little Masdevallia blooms again. This is Masdevallia persicina from Ecuador and Peru. It grows there at an altitude of 1500m to 1600m. Therefore I cultivate at temperate (13°C to 22°C) temperatures. She gets moderate light. This species, like the others in this genus, has a very mobile (vibrating) tongue.
