Masdevallia Maui Lollipop 'Hannah' HCC/AOS

I don't grow many orchid hybrids but this is one of the few, a charming hybrid of Masdevallia mendozae and Madevallia Angel Frost.  It is most like the Masdevallia mendozae parent with a very tubular flower, but has more erect flower spikes and a paler though brighter orange color, with the flowers slightly more open.  It has a double dose of "hairy" parents,  and so the flowers are lined with glandular hairs.
