The Bulbophyllum frostii, commonly known at the 'Dutchman's Shoe Orchid', is a miniature epiphytic orchid, native to Vietnam. This species orchid displays a stunning cluster of fragrant, maroon spotted flowers shaped similarly to the Dutch wooden shoes that they're named after. Accentuated by thick, deep green leaves at the apex of small pseudobulbs, this orchid species is sure to take centre-stage in every orchid collection. 

CARE:

Requires bright, filtered light outdoors, sheltered from any direct sun. Being an epiphytic species, the Bulbophyllum can either be mounted on your choice of raft, or potted in a shallow orchid pot, using small-medium grade orchid bark. If mounted, the Bulbophyllum will require increased humidity and very frequent watering to maintain adequate hydration. Potted Bulbophyllum requires frequent and thorough watering, allowing water to run completely through the pot. Fertilise fortnightly with an orchid specific fertiliser throughout spring and summer.
