Masdevallia Maui Lollipop 'Hannah' HCC/AOS

I don't grow many orchid hybrids but this is one of the few, a charming hybrid of Masdevallia mendozae and Madevallia Angel Frost.  It is most like the Masdevallia mendozae parent with a very tubular flower, but has more erect flower spikes and a paler though brighter orange color, with the flowers slightly more open.  It has a double dose of "hairy" parents,  and so the flowers are lined with glandular hairs.


  1. Que bela planta, com a bela foto e ampliada da para ver perfeitamente, nitidamente o quanto é peludinha.
    Parabéns Bom pela Divina e maravilhosa coleção e cultivo.

    1. Thank you ever so much for the kind words, Elisabete. I have a ways to go before I catch up with you and your growing skills and photography.
