    Default Bulbophyllum frostii

    This one grows very fast, like a vine but horizontally along the ground as you can see in the second picture. It is time to divide and repot again.

    Nice bloom Arne! I would say it is time for a repot when pb's start growing outside the pot. If I might suggest, if possible for you as it will require more watering, mount on a piece of cork with sphagnum they do very well this way, if not possible a bigger pot will do.

    I have stayed away from OT for awhile as it is not the same as it use to be when I joined, only a few members want to respond or post these days, but I have been thinking of posting my bulbos again. Thanks to Sheryl for the PM on this.

    How nice! Welcome back Jack! And thanks for your feedback. I was thinking of mounting it as well. But it is almost a mount already because it is growing on a thin layer of moss/bark mix on top of a lot of inert material (styrofoam and clay pellets) which is taking up most space in the pot.

    Then try to remove the Styrofoam and clay pellets and mount with the media as those roots are very thin and will break if you try to remove the media, unless the media is very old I would not try to harm the plant.
