365 days of orchids – day 154 – Bulbophyllum tingabarinum
This small growing Bulbophyllum species is native to warm forest in South East Asia where it has been recorded in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. Forest here experiences a hot wet summer and a cooler dryer winter with a hot dry season at the end of spring.
We have seen a great diversity of Bulbuphyllum species in Laos where most grow on trunks and lower branches giving some protection from the brightest sun but good light. We grow this species in Warm Asia and a winter rest in Cool America.
