Reichantha striatella

Reichantha stritella or Masdevallia striatella is an attractive species from Ecuador.  It has striped flowers, quite unusual in the genus Masdevallia.  The plant is 8 cm tall and the flowers are 1.5 cm long.  It blooms late fall or early in the winter, and I grow it, like most of my Masdevallias, in a plastic net pot in live sphagnum moss.
