Question Bulbophyllum reticulatum

Hi,

I was searching to buy B. beccarii, which is quite impossible to find at the moment here in Europe (I did find some in the US and Australia). And by accident stumbled over B. reticulatum, which is its little brother in the section beccariana, and, as I think with a more attractive leaf pattern. So I had to get it, despite of its absolouteley crazy pricing.
I know in theory about the cultural requirements, I would just like to know if anyone has personal experience and maybe the one or other hint from this.
I repotted immediately after receiving the plant and was very happy to have gotten 2 cuttings with 3 new growth in one pot. I potted one up, with a layer of rocks with mixed in oyster shell, as it apparently grows on limestone, put a layer of small/medium grade bark over it and Sphagnum on top. The other cutting I mounted on treefern. I put them in my hot, humid greenhouse. At the moment nighttime min. is set to 21C/~70F, daytime max. depends on the weather, between 21C/~70F if cold and cloudy and 35C+/~95+F if warm and sunny. Humidity is never below 80%. But it will move under lights indoors soon because I need the greenhouse in winter for my cool growing PNG Dendros etc. wich are still outside at the time.
I would be very happy to hear any personal experience with this species.

Cheers,
Julian

Hi. I am looking everywhere for a Blub. Beccarii where did you find it in the US?

As to your question I have two beccari hybrids and they are both on wet mounts which are coir with rock wool In the middle and they are quite happy so far.

What are you grow area parameters? Is it humid already or are you creating that within the pot, so to speak?

Sorry, I seem to not have looked well (since I can't order from the US anyway). It is sold out at the places I found it in the US. Only on ebay Australia there are seedlings for sale. But they do not ship abroad.

Sounds interesting, I might try that. I got a quite similar setup for one of my Hoya imbricata and one Vanilla planifolia. I was thinking about a small treefern stem stuck in the pot, where it hopefully will ramble up. But your idea seems like a very good option too.

I don't really understand the question. Rel. humidity in the greenhouse is 80%+ always. For temps see the above post.
