    Default Bulbo frostii

    I love these little "Dutch Wooden shoes" with a bouncy tongue. It has a slight fragrance more like the salt air at the seashore. I wouldn't call it offensive.

    I grow many different ways depending on the species. Some I have in bark mix, others on Treefern mounts, some on cork mounts with or without a moss pad, some on stick mounts. I use treefern pots frequently, they hold more moisture. All 160+ Bulbo species are in a friend's greenhouse which allows me to water with a hose. I water 3 to 5 times per week during the warm months depending on my availability and what days the 2 greenhouses get a full watering by someone else.
