    Default Bulbophyllum sangineopunctatum red

    First time blooming for me. The growth I have seen on my Bulbophyllums since repotting them this past spring from mounts, has amazed me!

    Not all of them but there were a lot I had mounted that I should have left in pots all along, they would be further along in growth and blooming then they are now, so I expect a lot of first time bloomers in the future.

    I feel the same way Zain, I really like this one, I also have a white and yellow one that has yet to bloom for me, so something to look forward too!

    Excellent blooming!!! Maybe it could have be a change in your culture that made it happy...different fertilizer, temp changes..light changes.. or it's happier wet all the time, I have bulbos both potted and mounted, the potted ones stay wet and

    Thanks!

    At the time I started my yearly repotting this past February I first researched all of my bulbos to find out if they preferred pots, baskets or mounts, at the time about 90% of them were mounted. There are many bulbos that can be mounted but a lot of them do better in pots according to my research so the ones that did better in pots were switched from mounts. Since then I have seen more growth then ever. My bulbos are all in the same area getting sun all day thru my shade cloth, all are watered daily and sometime twice a day either by all the rain we had this past summer or by me, fertilized every week during the summer and all have time release fertilizer, so I have come to the conclusion that moving them into pots is what changed my growth and blooming.

    You make me ashamed Jack. I have a few Bulbos ’s left now, most of which fill large pans, the biggest is I think 20 inches. They take up too much space on the bench, so hang up, and get watered too infrequently -out of sight, out of mind. Hence, flower too rarely, and that makes for a vicious circle. The biggest one was the hybrid Elizabeth something, variety Bucklebury which got an FCC/RHS, not given to my plant , mine was a piece of it. I eventually broke it up and took several hundred sprigs, each of 4or 5 bulbs plus a growth, to one of my orchid societies, and said “help yourselves”, and occasionally someone brings a plant in flower .
    Other growers do tell me that Bulbos like it very wet, but I guess I just have too many plants to give everything the kind of individual attention that orchids need to do really well.

    They like is humid and wet with a constant breeze to really do well. Sounds like what bulbos you have are some big ones, I am sure they are probably nice ones.
