Masdevallia coccinea var. xanthina
24th December 2020
Masadevallia coccinea is a spectacular orchid from the Andes in Colombia and Peru where it grows at altitudes of 2,400-3,000m. It seems to suit my cool, moist orchid house
though it is still to early to be sure of its long tertm survival.
A friend at my local Orchid Society offered me a division of this yellow flowered form in February and it has done well through the summer.
