Bulbophyllum medusae NFS 6" Basket
species - Thailand, Malaysia, Lesser Sunda Islands, Sumatra, Borneo
Clearly one of the most unique orchids you can find, Bulbophyllum medusae is a small plant that can form a medium sized "community" if given semi-bright light warm temperatures (65-85 degrees night-day), good humidity and a somewhat moisture retentive medium (NZ sphagnum moss works well for us). The "hairy head" (named after the Gorgon of Greek mythology) consists of a cluster of small flowers, the "hairs", up to 6" long being the sepals of the individual flowers.
These are flowering size divisions and they usually bloom during the Fall or Winter.
LIMITED - FLOWERING SIZE, NOT CURRENTLY IN FLOWER!
NOTE: this is the white variety, not the speckled 'Red Sand' variety we have offered in the past.
