Masdevallia glandulosa

I am very fond of small fragrant orchids, and my good friend Tom gave me this wonderful Peruvian Masdevallia recently. The whole greenhouse smells like cinnamon and cloves.  I imagine the scent is coming from the little glands covering the inside of the flower. It's name in Latin means "bearing the glands".
