Plant care

Masdevallia abbreviata requires a steady supply of water, especially during flowering. Make sure the soil contstantly stays moist. Adding sphagnum (a kind of moss) can help to achieve this. The orchid prefers cooler temperatures and likes to be well ventilated. When moved from a cool spot to a warmer place, the orchid will often start blossoming. Masdevallia abbreviata grows optimally with an average night temperature of 16 to 20 degrees Celsius. During the day the temperature may rise to be 5 degrees higher.
