Another Free Bulbophyllum lobbii backbulb

Bulbophyllum lobbii - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThe free Bulbophyllum lobbii backbulb from last week was very popular. I ended up sending three of these to people who contacted me.

This morning I was getting my two leads ready to mount and made a last-minute decision to cut off one more pseudobulb.

There is one more backbulb you can have if you claim it.

The rules are the same as always: You pay $5.50 postage and it comes Priority Mail. If you have not had a free orchid before, add a comment claiming it and them go to this page to get my direct email address and email me so we can work out the details. Offer ends at 4pm PDT on Thursday the 17th. After that time, anybody who wants it can have it. Continental US only please.

The pseudobulb and leaf are 7 inches long. There are no live roots. It is pretty well hydrated. The flower is large and long-lasting.

This should do well as an indoor plant if you have good light. Not Cattleya level but brighter that for Phals.

Bulbophyllum lobbii grows in Borneo, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines above 2000'. The species is warm to hot growing, fragrant and blooms in spring. The genus Bulbophyllum (Bulb) contains 1500 species found in all tropical areas on earth.
