    Masdevallia garciae is flowering spectacularly again. What's more, she smells wonderful, too.
    The plant occurs in Venzuela and grows there between 1200m and 1500m. This means that it can be grown at temperate temperatures. In winter not much lower than 14°C and during the day about 23°C.

    Christian, I find it difficult to describe what the scent is like. Anyway it's a nice sweet scent.
