Bulbophyllum thorium – 365 days of orchids – day 1632

We have two clones of this gorgious small growing bulbophyllum and the two coloured form is out today.


Bulbophyllum species add real interest and diversity to any collection and this small growing species from South East Asia with masses of deep red flowers with yellow tips to the sepals on a miniature plant is a real stunner.

The species is reported from 600-2000m but with us it and this clone seems to enjoy warm conditions in our Warm Asia section.

Our other clone is a deep red (below) and seems to prefer growing a little cooler.
