Bulbophyllum medusae FS 6" basket
species - Thailand, Borneo, Malaysia, Sumatra, Lesser Sunda Islands
This is the "Medusa's-Head Orchid" and what a conversation piece it is! The "flower" is actually a cluster of about 15 individual flowers and the thread-like structures are actually the lateral sepals of the flowers. The "threads" are about 6" long and rather off-white in color.
The Medusa likes filtered light and appreciates a temperature range of about 65-85 degrees with good humidity and regular watering and fertilizing. While this Bulbophyllum can bloom at any time, Fall and early Winter seem to predominate.
Sold in a 6" plastic mesh basket in NZ sphagnum moss.
NOTE: this is Not the 'Red Sand' variety we offer elsewhere.
