Default Masdevallia floribunda and Eria extinctorium

Masdevallia floribunda - this is one of the ones that I almost killed in the early days of my orchidarium as I was tweaking the parameters. I purchased it from Andy's in August of 2020. It lost a lot of leaves several times and regrew them. It's been pretty stable for about a year and a half, and just a few weeks ago I was telling my husband I thought it was time that it bloomed, and viola, a flower! It has a second spike, but today it looked like it might not mature all of the way.

Eria extinctorium - this also came from Andy's, but I just got it this January, so I'll have wait awhile to know if it is really happy or not. You can barely see the plant through the moss at all. A bit of the moss died the first few weeks it was here, and I took that as a bad sign even though it gets watered daily and is in high humidity. I actually thought it was the moss that was in spike until just before the flowers opened, because as you can see in the pictures, the spikes look like little hairs of grass that couldn't hold a flower up! (Yes, that is a third spike down at the bottom!)
