Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Scaphosepalum (Greek, boat and sepal, alluding to the form of the lower sepal). Orchidaceae. A genus separated from Masdevallia on the character of the lateral sepals, which are united into a boat-shaped organ. In habit the plants resemble masdevallias, except that the parts of the rhizome are longer, thus making the tufts less compact, and the racemes assume climbing habits, becoming very long and bearing fls. for months in succession. The dorsal sepal is free or nearly so; labellum and sepal small.—The genus contains about 10 or more species.

Grow in a coolhouse well protected from the sun. Keep the summer temperature as low as possible. Give plenty of water when growing. When at rest, water sparingly but do not allow the plants to become entirely dry. Use as small a pan as possible. The culture is like that for masdevallia.CH
