This Bulbophyllum facetum came from the member sale table at our annual show and sale in 2009. It has nice single flowers that show up well in the plant. There was room for growth on the mount. I considered it a real find and put it in a moist location partially shaded by other mounted plants.
Bulbophyllum facetum grows throughout the northern island of the Philippines in the mountains. It is warm to hot growing.
During last year's growing season it added a new pseudobulb on each of the leads. It is close to outgrowing the mount. At the same time, the oldest two generations died so we have two plants on the same mount. The plan for this plant has three parts. 1) Remove the lower part of the mount where the dead pseudobulbs are; 2) Cut vertically to separate the right and left sides; 3) Remove the outer lead from each half; 4) Mount each of leads.
