Plant care

Masdevallia kimballiana likes a semi-light spot, but should not be kept in direct sunlight. In the winter it should get slightly more light and less water. The ideal temperature for Masdevallia kimballiana is around 20⁰C. Don't let the temperature drop below 5⁰C or rise 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. 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.
