Stelis viridipurpurea

Stelises do like to stay moist, if not actually soggy, but are not as picky about temperature fluctuations as Masdevallias, and deal with the summer heat better.  The leaves on this are about 3-4″ long; it’s a miniature, but not a micro-mini like morganii or micrantha.  It’s another reliable bloomer, as long as it isn’t allowed to dry out.
