Masdevallia caudata

Masdevallia caudata is one of the most desirable of all the Masdevallia species.  It has huge flowers, in this case 16 cm from the tips of the tails, and on a plant that is only 8 cm tall.  It has a very strong but rather unpleasant scent and blooms in the spring.  It comes from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela.  My plant is grown in sphagnum moss in a plastic net pot and watered nearly every day.
