    Default Bulbo flabellum-veneris (lepidum)

    it seems that all varieties of lepidum have been moved to flabellum-veneris, based on Kew. This was stunning in full bloom but I didn not get around to taking pics then.

    Geoffrey, I have it growing in and on a large (12") treefern pot. It is grown moist and intermediate but like most Bulbos, would appreciate a warmer winter than I can give them.

    There must have been 25 spikes in bloom, at the same time, at one point.

    I bet it was something to see with 25 spikes in bloom at once! Nice growing, Ron!!

    Ron, growing in treefern, do you worry about buildup of salts?

    it is watered with rainwater and an abundance of it...Growing Bulbos is a balance of moisture and air to the roots...I find that treefern works well for many Bulbo species. I worry more about salts and CHC. I have just started experimenting with Epiweb as a growing medium for mounts.
