Default Masdevallia ignea ‘Valentine’ x discoidea ‘Anne’

I’ve been having fungal issues with my masdies after keeping them too wet for about a year, and every time I put this one near my others it would start getting leaf spots and dropping leaves. I think it got down to 2 or 3 leaves. But it loves life in my jewel orchid bowl, which gets quite hot, is watered only about once a week, and has almost no air movement. Here it is in the bowl in bud:

This is my first rebloom - I got the plant in bloom, and this flower looks almost nothing like the first one, the first flower was a shifting magenta/scarlet. I wonder if the heat has changed the flower color, or maybe the low light? Still gorgeous though!
