    I'm putting these in the miracle category. I'm an infamous Masdevallia torturer, and summer is usually a terrible time for them (at least with me).

    This one was super miraculous because I forgot I had it!

    This is a very beautiful species and not an easy one. Well done!! I like it. It has those not-attached sepals. A bit peculiar for a Masdevallia

    68-70F during the daytime, 50F at night. They're both in the wine cooler and seem to be enjoying it.

    That's the place to grow them. I have that in the winter, but never in our summers, although they are a bit cool (normally). Like I said, hard to grow.
    Very well done, again ;)

    Thankss! I need to bring down my night temps, mine gets in the mid 60s at night. Been growing lots of new leaves, but no flowers.
