    Nice shape flowers, and wonderful crisp photos.
    They make me wanting to own Masdevallia yungasensis.

    This is about the only one of this shape of masdevallia I like. I have a small adult plant that seems to be very weak. Any tips beyond what the books say?

    How cool can you keep it at night? I find yungasensis is resentful of warm summer nights.

    You can always try growing them in a terracotta pot and spaghnum as a substrate. Keeps the roots cooler.

    That’s what I do as well and with larger plants, I add some Leca and hard tree fern fiber to keep the moss a little more aerated.

    Would think you should do fine.
