I purchased this Masdevallia Veitchiana (Veitchiana ‘Pacific Giant’ x Vietchiana ‘Bolin’) at the San Jose Orchid Show from Paph Paradise on June 7th. It is an interesting Masdevallia as their culture is described as similar to a Cymbidium — i.e., can be grown outside. So intermediate temperatures are OK, good humidity and good air movement. It is described as a plant that is perfect for a beginner, and it should fit well in my environment.
The plant has started three new growths in the past couple of weeks.
