Masdevallia ventricosa, from the section Nidifica, is not the most colourful masdevallia, but on the other hand it blooms with very many flowers at once. It comes from Ecuador and grows there between 1400m and 2000m. I cultivate her cool. It looks very much like Masdevallia nidifica. However, this one is much redder in colour and has much longer hairs on the sepals.
