Default Masdevallia decumana?

Does anyone have any experience with this pretty thing and what it likes? I've found a couple sources that say "intermediate to cool, keep moist", but I'm wondering if anyone can chime in with what temperatures they've had one grow and bloom in. A size reference picture or a measurement on one leaf would also be nice, I'm having trouble figuring out how quite large it is. Looks pretty small.

I have not had a lot of luck keeping it alive, but it grows quite nicely in the cool (ambient coastal southern California) shadehouse at Andy's Orchids. It is a small (very cute) plant and flower. (My batting average with pleurothallids is improving... I may try this one again) I suspect that it would do nicely in a terrarium, I am guessing that maximum temperature around 75 deg F would be ideal... probably one reason I have had trouble with it... I'm just a few degrees warmer than Andy's so he gets away with things that I don't. It likely would be fine with lows in the low to mid 40's F.

Hm, might like temps a notch cooler than my terrarium is going to wind up averaging. Good to know, thanks. I'll put this one in the "maybe a later setup" pile for now.
