Masdevallia pastinata

Masdevallia pastinata is an intresting species that grows on the western slopes of the Andes in the El Choco region in Colombia. Since Masdevallia stay very small, you can also cultivate a nice collection of Masdevallia on your window sill. The most important condition is a good water quality. They do not like dry air, so misting twice a day is advised if you are not in a humid location. In Europe, these orchids can stay on a facing south window during the winter months, however from late spring to early autumn they should be moved to a less sunny window the temperature in the winter must not drop below 5-7°C.
