MAGNIFICENT MASDEVALLIAS OF PERU - In search of the unknown.

If you really want to find something precious that nobody else has ever seen before, or at least not scientifically documented as a new orchid species, it can pay off to study maps of remote areas in faraway countries. Peru has still a lot to offer in that regard. This country has been searched through for a couple of centuries by professional plant hunters, looking for just that unique plant that would bring a lot of fame and fortune for their employers.
