The following information about Masdevallias originates from Brian Milligan, entitled “Masdevallias Are Blooming” is from Orchids in Victoria, 2000. Milligan explains that “Masdevallias are popular because they make small, compact, easily managed pot-plants, a distinct advantage for those with limited growing space and a declining interest in repotting huge Cymbidium plants. A Masdevallia collection will provide an assortment of colourful blooms every day of the year. Some species flower only once a year, but others have a succession of flowers, while many hybrids flower several times throughout the year”.
