Masdevallia colossus 'Cascade' X Masdevallia goliath 'Seattle'

Got this one from Orchidaceae thanks to a tip from a fellow orchidboarder. Well its not in bloom yet, but its gonna pop soon, OMG its huge!!!!! As the names of both parents imply.
I looked up the two parent names in the international orchid register, and got nothing. Does anyone know if this is registered under any name???

For now enjoy the pre-bloom pics.

PS, Right now I am in Orchid heaven! I have M. Black Widow (M. ayabacana X M. cucullata) in spike as well as M. Macchu Picchu!!! Woo-hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (M. ayabacana X M. coccinea). I acan't wait!!!!!

Hi Tindo,
Are you growing your masdies in a terrarium? Is that the mister in the background?

Yup, yup. I have 4 misters running in two terrariums. The terrrariums are open, not closed.

Very nice Tin. I can just imagine how big that'll get in a year or so.

I've got to get a Machu Pichu myself. I like the flower, my wife likes the name.

Cheers.
Jim

Whatever the name, it definitely needs one indicative of something large. I hope it gets a fantastic one.

I am running out of patience. I think it wants to open on Sunday, the only day of the week I will not see it. It is slowly beginning to open. I have not been this excited over a Masdie bloom since the first time I had a Masdie bloom for me.
