    I believe this is a remake of Australian hybrid by Mountain Orchids in the US. It is Highland Fling X yungasensis. Not a huge hybrid fan, due to lack of space, but something like this is worth it.

    Absolutely! I need to go on a buying trip for Masdevallia soon. Or pay attention to Darren's site for things like this.

    I drive up and see him a couple times a year. He has a smaller set up that in the the past so sometimes the supply is limited and doesn't last long once on the web.

    Thanks, I think should be able to handle intermediate conditions. It does have Copper Angel in the background.

    Great hybrid! I can see why you would make space.

    I’m located in mid Missouri, not the best Masdevallia growing conditions , to hot and not enough humidity to keep them happy. Built a grow room in the basement, lights, fan and most importantly a humidifier, new growth, blossoms also, trying to find colorful hybrids, love the intense colors.
