    Default bulbophyllum medusae

    got this plant about near to two years, adopting rather well in my small garden. the size of each bulb had at least triple in size when initially bought. the longest one i could measure from base of the bulb to apex of the leaves is 11inches plus.
    finally decided to bloom, first time for me and hope to get more bloom the next year. sorry for the many pics but got to be bias on this one, so far one of my top favorite list bulbo

    sorry for the wrong sequencing of the photos..........

    Very nice. 11-inches from bulb to leaf tip? That's huge. What have you been feeding it?

    chemical fertilizer 21:21:21 and mix with also some bloom booster recently (i suspect that does the trick to end the 2 years of waiting) 13:26:26. but i guess it is the combination of the fertilizer plus the decaying wood that is mounted on that makes the plant thriving.
