Specifications
Masdevallia barlaeana
This fuchsia coloured orchid grows on the grass plains of the Andes. Masdevallia barlaeana appears to have a relatively large flower. The flower looks quite big, but actually isn't. It consists of parts which are fused together. In the wild Masdevallia barlaeana grows on rocks, so can be attached to a piece of cork at your home. In this way, the orchid will flourish.

Plant care

Masdevallia barlaeana likes a semi-light spot, but should not be kept in direct sunlight. During winter, it should get slightly more light and less water. The ideal temperature for Masdevallia barlaeana is around 18⁰C. Don't let the temperature drop below 5⁰C or above 25⁰C. A humidity around 80% will stimulate its growth. For the best results, water the plant using rainwater or distilled water whenever the substrate dries slightly. The orchid cannot store water. In practice this will be watering three to five times a week. Proper airflow combined with a proper humidity will help prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix will be a suitable substrate. You can also attach the plant to a piece of bark. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. Make sure moisture is able to drain from it. Fertilize with caution. Old flowers can be cut from the plant.
