Masdevallia rex

Masdevallia rex is from Ecuador and belongs to the section Saltatrices, a group of Masdevallias with tubular, hair-lined flowers and a bulge at the base of the flower tube.  It has some of the largest flowers in the section, from whence it gets its name, rex, i.e., the King.  On my plant the flowers are 14 cm from top to bottom and are produced on a plant that is only 10 cm.
