We grow our Masdevallia sitting in trays with capillary matting and damp but allow air movement to prevent rotting new growths. Do not let plants overheat, leaves should always feel cool when touched. This species likes a cool greenhouse with night low temperatures of 9-14 degrees and daytime temperatures of 22-27 degrees. Plants will grow indoors if cool night temperatures, sufficient humidity and air circulation are provided.
