Masdevallia sotoana 'Edward' CBR/AOS

Masdevallia sotoana is from Ecuador and is a tiny species in the Saltatrices section of the genus. The plant is only 4cm tall and the flowers, produced in profusion in winter, are 1.5cm from tip to tip.  The plant is cool growing and thrives for me in live sphagnum in a small net pot.  This particular plant was awarded a Certificate of Botanical Recognition (CBR) by the American Orchid Society a year or two ago.
