Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI ran into a person who wanted advice about re-potting Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS. I ended my response with the comment that if the person had backbulbs that were being thrown out, I would pay shipping if they were sent to me. If backbulbs are clean and dry, they can be mailed without medium or pots in regular mail.

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann is Cirrhopetalum longissimum x Cirrhopetalum rothschildianum.Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Plant photo by Richard Lindberg Cirrhopetalum (Cirr) contains 150 species growing in Asia east of India on to the Pacific islands. This group was separated from Bulbophylum. Grow these in a wood basket or treefern fiber.

Later I realized that I already had some backbulbs from a plant I got at the SCOS in September. I had never done anything with them and they were looking pretty dried out. Yesterday I potted them in sphagnum. We'll see if they recover after being in a box completely dry for six months.
