Bulbophyllum hashimotoi – Syn. B. orthosepalum
This is a larger sized species within the genus of Bulbophyllum, it is native to Papua New Guinea and is a warm intermediate grower. Prefers to be grown as an epiphyte.
These specimens are well hardened-off seed-grown plants from our lab here at Native Exotics. We have mounted them on cedar planks. They are small, about 2″ across. They’re still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.
This plant prefers intermediate conditions, which means that it should be kept around 79-85°F during the day and 63-65°F at night with a very high relative humidity, allow to dry out some between watering.
Orchids as a genus, in most cases prefer high humidity, at least 55% RH for most species. In addition, they should be watered with distilled water, rainwater or reverse osmosis water rather than tap or well water. Fertilizing Orchids should only be done every two weeks using a fertilizer specifically for Orchids.
