Bulbophyllum treschii 2.5" NFS
species - Malaysia
A fantastic flower on a tiny plant. We grow this one with warm nights (i.e. 65 degrees), semi-shady and moist roots, but it said to grow cooler (i.e. 55 degree nights) as well. Good humidity is helpful. Flowers seem to be bourn at any time, but some of these are spiking now.
The flowers are up to 6"+ vertically and occur in simultaneously opening groups of about 4. We are offering these in pots, but they can also be grown in hanging baskets or mounted on cork bark or other suitable materials.
We received these plants as Bulbophyllum plumatum, but as they began to bloom, we realized they were Bulb. treschii due to the larger flowers, and the rough, "crumpled" look of the sepals and their pointed tips.
