Hi folks,

I've just been given a Bulbophyllum membranaceum by a friend. I've never grown Bulbophyllum before, did some reading up on it. As they prefer moist conditions, and seeing that it is a miniature, I am considering putting it in a terrarium - has anyone done that? Thoughts?

As always, thanks a lot for your help

Sunny

B. membranaceum is a great little bulbophyllum. I no longer have this one in my collection, but it thrived when I was growing it within a terrarium.

Pretty much keep the same growing parameters for all the assorted bulbos in my terrariums - temperatures on the warm side (74-84F), RH around 70-80%, kept damp but not wet, good air circulation, lightly fertilized bi-weekly, and grown under moderately bright artificial lighting.

I usually grow my bulbos on mounts with a bit of LF sphagnum. I like using mounts because I can easily move them around and adjust them (different positions) inside the terrariums. I use what I have on hand for mounts (which can range from wood, different types of cork, and tree fern). My "go-to" mounting material choice (if I have it) is tree fern. Forgot to add - mine usually flowered in the late fall, early winter.

I really like your user name. I think everyone can use a sunny smile!

Heya!

Thanks a lot for your reply, sorry it took me a few days to get back to you - the second wave of Covid has caught up with us and the entire household is now under quarantine...!

That's very useful information and I will see if I can get my hands on a bit of tree fern somewhere, sounds like a great idea to mount it - I sort of just bunged it in a terrarium for the time being but will improve on that once I'm able to leave the house again

Thank you

Sounds like you are off to a good start. Keep us posted with your progress!

Covid has definitely made for a brutal year. There's this old saying: "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade". It's kind of hard making good lemonade out of a batch of bad lemons, eh?

This pandemic gets me thinking about that old Beatles' song... 'Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they are here to stay, oh I believe in yesterday'.
