Amazing plant! Can this be grown in a room or a warm terrarium?

thanks very much for the kind comments!

@ Deadly Weapon: you are in luck. this masdevallia is very warm tolerant and can be grown in warm/intermediate conditions without any problems.

*Röchel* :shock:

You make me depressive!! ;o) But you know something? My specimen is currently also sending out a few flower stalks. It has a new place in the terrarium now where it obviously feels more comfortable. However it doesn´t look like I will enjoy so many flowers than your plant provides you with. :cray:

It´s a nice species, isn´t it?

@andreas: yes, definitely a beautiful flowering miniature. im sure as your plant matures, the number of inflorescences will definitely increase!
@martin: thank you very much! i definitely agree!

Indeed it´s a beauty.
Have you mounted it on the peace of bark?

If i will have some time these days i will also show pictures of some of my orchids.

Best regards,

Daniel

@Daniel: yes, i have my orchid mounted on corkbark. i do this actually with all my orchids and it saves me a lot of pot space, as all of them grow vertically. unfortunately, because of this i cannot grow any paphs since these are 1) usually large in nature and 2) terrestrial. i would love to see pictures of your orchids. looking forward to seeing them!
