Masdevallia Speckled Treasure

(M. datura x M. Myra)

 

Plant ID: 01799/04731/04408(top row), 04974/04975(bottom row)

 

Additional Information: M. Myra is M. uniflora x M. chaparensis - neither of which seemed to have much influence in the majority of the flowers of this hybrid in terms of fuchsia color or spots. Clone number 04975 was the first to show the influence of M. uniflora as a grandparent. Clone number -4974 has some light speckles of red centrally and was the clone that influenced the name. The yellow center is typical of M. uniflora, the yellow tails could have come from M. chaparensis and the form is closer to M. Myra. Other than that, M. datura influenced the overall color and substance.
