    Question Bulbo. wilbur Chang

    Trying to get a cutting off of my Bulbophyllum Wilbur Chang, it seems that the bulbs grow one on top of another, is this how they grow? Any experience with getting a cutting from these, or is it just by division of bulbs? Mine has three nice spikes but no trailing pieces I could cut off. Thanks for any help.CTB

    That is quite common presentation depending on how you grow it, like other Bulbos the best if you want to divide minimum pseudobulb is 3 for time being better not to cut let you enjoy the flower first. After you divided I would prefer to use wooden or fern slabs with thin layer of moss at the base to maintain humidity till the new roots coming and it's looks more natural.

    so, this will have to be divided rather than cutting off a runner? Will it grow from the back bulbs? Sequential bloomer usually lasts three months, so I'll enjoy first

    You can also cutting or divide depending on the position of the plant based on observation as long as the back bulbs still ok definitely it will come out the new shoot once they receive proper care from you. It will take for example in my country within 4 to 6 weeks ( as here only have 2 season wet and hot) the roots and shoot arise from the base of pseudobulb.
