Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis is a the largest variety of the epiphytic Bulbophyllum orchid, native to Papua New Guinea. Its name comes from having foliage resembling that of the Phalaenopsis orchid. This variety produces an unusual display of fetid, deep maroon flowers covered in a short, yellow, hair-like structures, clustered against the pseudobulb. 

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.
