Default Bulbophyllum croceum

The flowers are brilliant orange little sunbursts, so cool and unusual. They only lasted about 4 days, and they have a very faint, sweet earthy fragrance, kind of like overripe fruit, or fallen autumn leaves after a rain.

I got some cuttings of this plant from a former OrchidBoard member last year. Was lucky enough to get a couple spikes this year, even though the plant tends to drop leaves only a few months after growing them. Not sure why.

It grows in a shallow plastic basket in Gubler brand fine grade mix with sphagnum on top. Kept very moist, watered almost daily, tiny amount of fertilizer (5-25 ppm N) with each watering. Humidity 60% and up, about 1 meter below the SF1000 led lights.

That is really neat! I love both the color and the presentation.

Bulbos are great freaky orchids. I always enjoy them and yours is putting on a show! So dry in my home that my hair(and sometimes the cats tail) pops out looking like this bloom. And yes, I have 2 humidifiers going 24/7.

So pretty! From afar it doesnt even look like an orchid, then you get close and see the little flowers... What a lovely plant.
