Luzama carmenensis

Luzama carmenensis or Masdevallia carmenensis is a small species from Colombia and Ecuador.  It blooms in the spring and has large flowers in proportion to the plant.  The plant is 5 cm tall and the flowers are also 5 cm from the base of the tube to the end of the sepaline tails and from tip to tip.  The flower spikes are 9 cm and carry a single flower.  Because the flowers are semi-pendant the plant seems to do best mounted and mine is on a piece of cedar with a bit of moss around the roots.
