    This plant is from a Colombian vendor a few years ago. The flowers are 3" tall.

    Thanks, folks. Masdevallia, unfortunately, I took the spike off as soon as a photographed it. The plant isn't really strong yet and I didn't want to stress it. I learned the hard way many years ago that you can set an odont back years by leaving flowers on a small plant.
