General Information and Care: Masdevallia tuerckheimii is another fantastic species that Glass Box Tropicals offers for the terrarium enthusiasts. This species is very closely related and even sometimes considered to be the same as Masdevallia floribunda. However, this species typically blooms at the opposite time of year. Also, this species tends to be more brightly colored and white and bright purple to almost pink markings on the flowers. This is a rather easy to grow species that seems to be tolerant of a wide variety of conditions within a terrarium. Typically it does best when mounted epiphytically or planted in a planter off of the substrate layer. It also prefers decent lighting and regular mistings to stay moist but not overly wet.

Glass Box Tropicals Plant Care Rating: 4

Shipped Size: Blooming size division, may be mounted or unmounted.
