Bulbophyllum arfakianum album 4" FS
species - Arfak Mountains of Papua, New Guinea
Probably best described as something from a sci-fi movie, Bulbophyllum arfakianum is simply bizarre! The "pelican" look is accomplished by the sepals held closely together and hide the rest of the flower. The 3-4" long flowers are held on short single flowered stems. They seem to be able to bloom both Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter.
Dappled light, temperatures between about 65-85 night to day with moist (not soggy) roots are their cultural requirements. Add a liquid or water soluble fertilizer twice a month.
