Buccella dynastes

Also and perhaps better known as Masdevallia dynastes, this small species is from Ecuador.  The plant is 10 cm tall and the flowers 2 cm.  The plant tends to have a climbing habit, but I grow it in a small net pot in live sphagnum moss.  It is supposed to be temperature tolerant, but I grow it with other cool-temperature species.  The oddly shaped and colored flowers are produced during the winter.
