Bulbophyllum sumatranum back in bloom

Bulbophyllum sumatranum - Photo by Richard LindbergThe genus Bulbophyllum (Bulb) contains 1500 species found in all tropical areas on earth.

Bulbophyllum sumatranum grows in Sumatra needing low light and high humidity. Blooms in the spring.

I have only had the plant for a little over a month and it is already back in bloom. There are three new flowers. It is right to the edge of the pot and I will keep an eye on it to see when new growth starts.

Lillian and I are having a joint open greenhouse this Saturday. Details are in the SCOS news letter.
