Masdevallias orchid

Masdevallia orchid

Masdevallia doesn’t even look like an orchid. Masdevallias resemble kites in flight. These orchids have very exaggerated sepals (the top central and the two bottom “petals”), so much so that the three parts merge together to form a tube with tail-like extensions.Masdevallias are cool-growing orchids naturally found in the high-elevation South American Andean cloud forests, with the highest concentration in Columbia, Ecuador and Peru.
