I received this Bulbophyllum Frank Smith ‘Vera Cruz’ HCC/AOS from the raffle table at the Sacramento Orchid Society meeting on Wednesday, February 3rd.
I planted it into S/H on Thursday. It was planted in spaghnum moss, and consisted of a two-bulb division and two back-bulbs. The back bulbs were both rotting at the bottom, and I threw them out. This two resulting bulbs seem quite healthy, although the roots were not that healthy. There is a new growth coming, and developing nicely.
From the backbulbs blog:
From the Orchids in our Tropics website:
Bulbophyllums grow wet at intermediate to warm temperatures with bright light.
I will put it on the top shelf in a lesser light for a few weeks to let it acclimate.
