Bulbophyllum laxiflorum

In honor of the the thousandth blog post I will give away five orchids today. This is the last of five post that were spaced through the day with a free orchid in each post.

Bulbophyllum laxiflorum - Flower photo by Richard LindbergBulbophyllum laxiflorum - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThis one is a 4-pseudobulb lead division of Bulbophyllum laxiflorum. This species grows throughout Southeast Asia. It is warm to hot growing, very tropical. The flowers are fragrant and can occur any time of the year. A group of flowers radiate from the end of the spike forming a starburst effect. The genus Bulbophyllum (Bulb) contains 1500 species found in all tropical areas on earth.

The rules are simple: add a comment claiming it and them go to this page to get my direct email address so we can work out the details. Anybody who wants it can have it, no first-time restriction today. Continental US only please. First comment wins. I will pay the postage.

This will come bare-root. It will do best potted but can also be mounted.

Thank you all for reading my blog.


  1. I would gladly take this one!

  2. Congratulations, Richard! I enjoy reading your comments and I've learned a lot from your blog. Here's to your next 1000 posts!
