Default Masdevallia Top Ten List

Looking for recommendations for the top ten, must have, Masdevallia species or hybrids!

I am especially interested in the minis or super unusual ones.

I'd like to add a new one to my collection. . .looking for something really special.

I am seriously considering Andy's Masdevallia papillosa or the Masdevallia marthae or the Masdevallia filaria And the problem is, there are about ten other ones that I really like too.

Any thoughts?

Why choose between the three? I say buy 'em all! Hehe.....on a more serious note, I looked at all three links and they are all awesome! In my opinion I think the Masdevallia marthae is the more interesting one, followed by Masdevallia papillosa. I only have one NOID Masdevallia hybrid so I am of not much help!

Hey, orchid buddy! Your opinion is always appreciated!!!!

Yes that marthae is veddy interestick, and it's not too big too!

Wonder why the papillosa is so expensive?

I've got the erinacea. . .and it IS one of my top ten faves for sure. I think there's a little yellow hybrid too but I haven't found it for sale YET.

I really love the nidifica. . .Andy has a sort of greenish one. It's soooo hard to tell from the pics but his looks different than your pic. I really think this one's cool. . .and it's tiny!

Masdevallia / ophioglossa (nidifica ssp ventricosa)

Thanks for you thoughts, Tom!

Once you are done ordering your TC's from Andy's -
Don't forget to check out J & L Orchids -
They have a nice list of masdies also J&L Orchids ~ Masdevallias

Gwen, you should take a look at I.N. Komoda for Masdies.

They are known for "warmth-tolerant" Masdies but that's just "tolerant"...not actually warm growers.

Beautiful, healthy and not insanely priced
