    Hi Derek, where did you find this? It looks so delicate and fragile. Where does it grow? Where did you find it? Sorry for the 20 questions it a very interesting species.

    It is our Philippine endemic Bulbophyllum orchid.

    It is an epiphytic orchid related to Bulbophyllum levanae and Bulbophyllum mearnsii.
    Flowers are slightly fragrant and will lasts about 2 weeks in high altitudes and 1 week for low altitudes.

    It is best planted in hanging baskets or tree fern slabs (although this is not recommended since Tree ferns (genus Cyathea) are listed as protected fern species in the Philippines) and it prefers bright light and high humidity.

    This orchid is already grown at home.
