    Default Trias diciflora

    Based on IOSPE, it is related to Bulbophyllum. It is from Vietnam, Thailand and Laos evergreen lowland forests below 1500m. I grow it under fluorescent lights without any dry period and I found it's quiet easy to grow. Flower does not really smell nice.

    Don't really know. This is the first bloom. I had been waiting for almost 2 years!

    Did you divide your plant this year or something?

    I was curious about the plant size since you said it was an easy grower for you.
    FWIW, I would not divide this species unless it is a huge plant or naturally it divides itself. I grow mine on cork mount.
