    I love the genus Mediocalcar, but so few species seen up here in the Northern Hemisphere. I’m not generally fond of variegated Orchids, but this M. decoratum seems quite pleasing. Reminds me a bit of a temperate “rock garden” plant like a Saxifragia.

    Nicely grown!
    Where did you get it from and how old is the plant?

    Hi Raven, This was a division from Andy. I’ve had it maybe about 3 yrs. It has been a very fast grower.

    I wonder if there is more than one clone of this in the US.

    I have one from Andy, too. I'm assuming it is the same clone. Mine just finished blooming...maybe 2-3 flowers remaining.

    Thanks everyone!

    Marni - the only variegated plants I’ve seen have originated from Andy.

    Chuck, It is quite possible that the person who shared it with me got it from Andy, but I can no longer ask him.
