    I have a tuber from Eulophia nuda , by Jay it´s a synonym for spectabile.

    I´m not sure the tubers are completly in substrate or must they looking out a little bit ?

    Hi Andrea.Ok, dont worry.
    In the wild I always noticed the bulb or tubers partially out and sometimes all the bulbs appeared on the ground.My recommendation you can partially buried the tuber with the good draining substrate to prevent from soggy, this what I do for my Eulophia, this evening after I come back from office I will take several photos for you to see.Zain
