Masdevallia constricta 'Kailyn' HCC/AOS

This is the other plant I had awarded at the last session of the Northwest Regional Judging Center.  It was given a High Class Certificate for the size of the flowers which are substantially larger than any other clone that has been awarded.  They are given a measurement of 13 cm in the awards description, which reads: "Four large, well-presented flowers and six buds; sepals white, sepaline tube orange color deepening toward column; petals hidden; caudae medium yellow; substance firm; texture matte."  Some of the flowers have been larger, however, as much as 15 cm.  The species is from Ecuador and this awarded clone is named after one of our granddaughters.
