    I last took pics of this plant some 4 years ago ; its much bigger now of course - and interestingly, the flowers are far more densely packed , with more per spike. Growing in a 12 inch pan, with 8 spikes, four on each side. It maybe needs bigger pan, but I will leave it, they don't seem to mind hanging over the edge, and since the plant hangs up on one of many wires I have running the length of the greenhouse, I don't want it to be too heavy, and if I went to a 15 inch or 18 inch pan, all the extra compost would make it so, especially when wet.

    The more Bulbophyllum I see the more I want, right now I am at 55 and come January I will be adding more. Great shots!

    Beautiful specimen! My orientale still has a long way to go to reach the size of yours, i am suprised you are able to grow it in a pot, mine does not even want to grow onto its mount!
