Reichantha striatella

Reichantha or Masdevallia striatella is an attractive and prolific species from Ecuador.  It is distinguished by its bold stripes which are rather rather rare among Masdevallias.  The plant is 8 cm tall and the flowers are 1.5 cm long.  It blooms early in the winter and I grow it, like most of my Masdevallias, in a plastic net pot in live sphagnum moss.
