    Default Bulbophyllum tingabarinum advice? And hi everyone!

    Hey Everyone! Been a while hasnt it? I will start another thread soon to catch up on all the gos!

    Anyways, i went to New Plymouth this weekend to go to the Taranaki Orchid Societys summer show. I walked away with 5 orchids, three that i need help with.

    Number one is Bulbophyllum tingabarinum.

    I got this at a bargain price of 10NZD, a vendor who specialises in species is closing down (a blow to the community!) after running for several years at a loss.

    I currently have this in the shadehouse, under frosted Fibrelite, with a single layer of shadecloth suspended underneath. The sides are open, and will be closed in Winter. Daytime temperature is around 26 average in summer (15-20 night), and 15 in winter (7-8 night). It receives a 20 minute watering period at 1:30pm every day.

    Based on the above info, and on the photo below, does anyone think i should alter my culture conditions for it, and how long will it take to flower, approximatly?

    Can't grow this in my place but the cooler conditions in your place might just suit it .
