Default Bulbophyllum, & Cirrhopetalum

I was wondering if anyone out there knows anything about bulbophyllum gracillimum, or bulbophyllum luederwaldtii, or Cirrhopetalum cumingii?
I found them at the website link posted below, they claim they are miniatures, and good for vivs. What do you guys think???? I think they are cheap.

They are smaller bulbos and should work in vivariums/terrariums. I know Harry very well and get lots of plants from him, so I'd recommend getting them and/or other plants from him anytime... also he has great prices and is great to work with.

Great! Do you know what kind of potting mix they work well in? I hope he still has some.

Thanks.

I agree with Beetle here. Harry is very easy to work with and has never did me wrong. I usually just mount my bulbo's on cork or tree fern panels in my viv's.

Best-

Most likely they will come mounted on a treefern panel with some spagnum moss under the roots. In my tanks I mount mine like Justin does, but I do have some other bulbos that are growing in a mostly moss based potting mix outside of tanks. Most of the ones I grow (and have grown) seem pretty tough and able to handle some neglect or mistakes.

Yeah, I really like them and find them pretty easy as well. It probably has to do with the fact that it is hard to over water them when they are mounted (most of mine are that way). If you are slightly interested in them I would suggest at least trying one... but you might get hooked like I did (I know you know the feeling, keeping darts ).
