Bulbophyllum micholitzii var. album x Bulbophyllum arfakianum

(Photos show both parents)

The flowers on both species parents are quite unusual.  Blooms have a sort of 'hooded' shape, where the top dorsal curves over and covers the barely open petals.  We are expecting colors in light green to pale yellow, possibly with overlaid dark-red veining.

Growing Suggestions- Both parents are native to New Guinea or surrounding islands.  We suggest these as intermediate to warm growing (68°-85°) with dappled light conditions meaning more shady than not.  We tend to grow our Bulbophyllums on a bench underneath other hanging plants.  Most Bulbophyllums have somewhat fine, and short root systems so overly bright light or dry conditions will desiccate the foliage. Grow in well draining but moisture retentive media.  We have started ours in pots and by the time they outgrow their current containers, they will be ready for shallow baskets or pan pots.

First Time offering!  Newly established in 2.5" pots. Plants are expected to reach flowering size within 2 years.
