This is a discussion on bulbopphyllum phalenopsis seedlings within the New Growers: Ask the Senior Members forums, part of the New Growers category; hi, i got this bulbophyllum phalenopsis seedlings about two years ago. the longest leaf span ...
i got this bulbophyllum phalenopsis seedlings about two years ago. the longest leaf span is 4 inches. there is 8 bulbs of total in the pot.
with the eight bulb there, now it is growing out 5 new growths. should i trim away the new growth leaving 1-2 growths behind? the reason is i want the bulb to grow bigger in size rather than quantity? or should i divide the plant into 2 -3 diviisions? or should i leave it alone?
almost forgot, one of the new lead bulb that just form attained only 2.5inches in length, i am suspecting nutrients competition among new forming bulbs.
I would split them into 2 pots. That is what I did to my Bulbophyllum fletcherianum.
Yes, two pots. You will need lots of patience with this orchid. They get huge before they bloom. Ours has leaves that are 3 feet and every time I think it is spiking, it puts out a new p-bulb.
