Bought this during Gardentech.

Just shifted from my rack last week to a more shady location and it bloomed with multiple spikes this week. Glad to catch it on time.

This Bulbophyllum was originally found in Mt. Maquiling ( Laguna province) Maquiling was the spelling name used during the Spanish period hence the name was derived.But the current name of the place is Mount Makiling ( used in today's book and maps)

Do you always keep it wet? and what is your fertilising regime?

Is'nt that species Highland?

If it is, keep them in cool temperatures or rots will occur. Hope you can grow it well. I love to grow that, but scared.

Cheers,
Amos
