Luzama amaluzae

Luzama amaluzae or Masdevallia amaluzae is a small species from Ecuador and Peru.  The flowers are 3 cm on a plant the same size and are held on spikes that are 6-8 cm in length.  The plant blooms profusely and seems to prefer somewhat lower light and a mount rather than a pot.  My plant is grown cool and is on a piece of cedar.
