    Default Bulbophyllum masdevalliaceum



    Hey,

    Got a question. I saw this plant at the nursery. I asked the owner the name of the plant and he showed me the tag Bulbophyllum masdevalliaceum, however, he told me that Bulbophyllum masdevalliaceum is synonym to Bulbophyllum blumei. Since I already have Bulbophyllum blumei, i dun want to risk it. Is the synonym true?

    Cheers
    Vincent

    Hi Vincent,

    The correct name for your plant is Bulbophyllum maxillare. The other names are synonyms.
