The genus Dracula (DRAK-yew-lah) contains some of the showier, more bizarre and well known members of the group. From the Latin Dracula, a little dragon, the fancied flowers look like mythical beasts. Over 100 species are found in Central America and the northwest Andes, almost half in Ecuador alone. Once included in the genus Masdevallia they have large, thin, keeled leaves and long tailed flowers with extraordinary hinged lips. The inflorescences often grow downward so potting in net or slat baskets is suggested for these plants. This genus can also handle the most watering; indeed, some growers even keep the pots in trays of water.
