The main Masdevallia growing area -
orchids are outdoors with shade net
above and vented panels to the side to
allow good air circulation, but protect
from heavy winds..

the upper growing area.
This is our Stanhopea "cage". We lost many of these beautiful
plants to the local wildlife. One day we were checking on our
stanhopea and suddenly the leaves started dropping off.
They had been chewed off at the base.
We immediately built a secured area thinking squirrels or
raccoons were the culprits, only to have the same recurring
issue. There was only 1 tiny hole in the cage area, so we
thought it might be mice. We plugged it tightly and the issue
seems to have been resolved.
We won't use poison or traps, so it takes a lot of work to
protect our orchids from the "locals"..

All the white Sarcochilus lined up in a
row. Way in the background, you can
see a couple of colored ones.
