    In 2009 I made an outcross of two Masdevallia setacea plants in my collection. It was one of the first things I sowed once I started flasking. I still have a surprising number of the seedlings growing in the collection. Here are three that have bloomed recently from that cross. One of the parents was very dark and the other very light.

    Hi Marni,

    great photos of a great species! I have one of your seedlings that is lighter colored. I will post at some point if I can find the photo.

    That is really nice! I need to add one to the collection. I'll keep an eye out for it on your ebay.
