Masdevallia lucernula

Masdevallia lucernula, from Peru, is a rather odd species that does not open widely and has flowers that are more or less pendant at the end of the flower spikes, though the spikes themselves are erect.  It is a small species, only 10 cm tall, the spikes held just above the foliage, and the flowers 3 cm long.  It requires cool to cold temperatures and my plant is grown in sphagnum moss in a plastic net pot.
