    Default Bulbophyllum ambrosia - how to flower it ?

    My plant flourishes ; now filling an 8 inch pan , with maybe 15 or 20 leads - but never a sign of a flower. Looks healthy, is healthy , is with a lot of Bulbos which do flower - what am I not doing which this particular species wants ? I wonder... Any suggestions from someone who does flower it ?

    Mine bloomed without any special treatment. It does summer outside in the shade house and winters on the north side of the greenhouse. I just posted its picture recently.

    Maybe try to increase the amount of light, Geoff. Sometimes that seems to do it when not much else will. Good luck to you!

    Cheers,
