Default Masdevallia coccinea X Masdevallia regina

Finally! My fist Masdivallia flower ! YEEEEY!!!!!
All my Masdies were growing at 80F for the past two years with evenly moist weekly weakly fertilizer at the east facing window of the kitchen….it never bloomed for me up until I cooled it down to 50 to 60F last September by putting it nearer the glass of the window and far away from the heater….the oscillating fan of the electric humidifier must have also helped….I also have three Masdies spiking and will be delighted to post pictures of their blooms....
The leaves of this plant are 5 to 8 inches in length and the spike is 14 inches staked because the flower is getting too heavy if left by itself….the flower is 4 inches in diameter but if the ends of the pointy petals are counted it can be seven inches in diameter….I just love the yuletide colors of this flower and the center looks like a flickering candle light….by comparison from the pictures of the parents: this flower came out really nice.

Very nice hybrid, Bud, and congratulations on the blooms. Told you it'd just be a matter of time.
