    Default Cyr. Campanulatum

    Ok I'm stuck......I cannot find any info on this orchid....purchased it several months ago from a local grower. He identified it as above, but I think maybe he got the name wrong.

    Anyone familiar with this species? Currently it is mounted on a peice of buttonwood tree but it seems dry (small pseudobulbs and really tiny, delicate roots).

    Can someone help?

    Default Hey!

    This species is from the island of Sulawesi (Celebes). Therefore, I'm almost positive it is warm/intermediate growing and probably needs even moisture year around. Light would probably be somewhere between Phals and Catts.

    The proper name for this is Cirrhopetalum auratum. It is native to Thailand, peninsular Malaya, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Philippines where it prefers to grow on mangrove trees. It can take warm to intermediate conditions with mottled shade, moderate air movement and high humidity. If you are growing indoors I would suggest watering it everyday.

    It also goes by these synonyms: Bulbophyllum auratum, Phyllorchis aurata, Bulbophyllum campanulatum, Cirrhopetalum campanulatum, and Cirrhopetalum candelabrum.

    Names of species change often. The currently accepted name by Kew is Bulbophyllum auratum. This is a very good place find names and synonymy for species plants. It also has distribution information. It is a fantastic resource. It is located at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew: World Checklist Series

    Default Thank you!!

    I appreciate all the info and the great link! The mystery is solved.......why does the name change?

    So I live in S. Fl...plenty of humidity but I'm not certain Buttonwood is the best (it was mounted on it when I bought it). I have it outside and it just looks dry to me, although I do have a new pseudobulb growing.

    I'll post a pic...........

    Oh it definitely gets enough light....I was thinking too much. See how those tiny little roots have attached to the wood? What's going to happen if I try to move it to something else?
