    Beautiful!! Good for you!! I wish I could get mine to bloom. It just grows and grows and grows. How much light do you give your Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis? How much water (how often). What is the feeding schedule for your plant? What temperature range do you use when growing this plant? Thanks.

    cheers,
    BD

    I love these! I want one for myself, but they tend to be rather expensive....how old is this one? I notice it has practically crawled out or it's pot.

    Thanks for viewing BD, the plant is housed in glasshouse with temperature ranging from 18 to 34 degree c, under humid condition of no less than 40% with 50% shade fertilize weekly with about 5000ppm general fertilizer but I do spray with epsom salt and calcium nitrate every other month.

    Thanks for viewing lanhua, surprisingly the plant is not huge, the leaf span is around 350mm.
