    Masdevallia schroederiana is a cool to intermediate growing orchid from Costa Rica and probably Peru. This orchid likes constant humidity. If you forget the watering, the flowers look deformed:

    Very nice, one of the species I struggle with. Not sure why. What species do you grow near it?

    An excellent one. The petals on mine also do what they want. They change position from one flower to another, from one night the next as well.
