Masdevallia echo

January 11, 2010

Masdevallia echo. Luer 1978

This species grows in cloudforests. Endemic to central Peru at around 2000 – 2700 meters.

Erect inflorescences that grows out from the base. The inflorescence is triangular in cross-section, 15-30 cm long. Leafts 10-20 cm long, narrow elliptical-oblong.

Grows this in high humidity, good air movement. Grown in fine bark, sphagnum mixture. Were going to mount it hanging but the the flower started to appear so I will wait with that.

Minimum Temp +10°C to +12°C. Max temp +20°C. These are the winter temperatures in my vivaria.

    I re-pot my plants if they are in flower or not and never had any effect on flowers aborting etc, this is not to say they won’t, but i have never experienced this myself.

    Very nice pictures, can you give details on how you get the black background please.
