BULB-0001

Bulbophyllum barbigerum

Bulbophyllum barbigerum

This is the plant species that really started my absolute fascination/obsession with orchids. Once I found a species that literally looks as if it is alive with burgundy hair it was all over for me.
I have always been fascinated by the bizarre and amazing; whether it be animals or plants. If it is weird I probably have owned it or am still searching;-)
This species is very easy to grow and flower. The flowers are deep burgundy and the lip looks like a red worm that is on a hinge and literally wiggles around with the slightest breeze. They really do look alive! Have freaked many people out with this one, got to have some fun… when it has 5-6 flowers and they are all moving around independently, it really is an awesome sight.

Bulbophyllum beccarii

Bulbophyllum beccarii ‘Rogue Orchids’

I love to offer the rare and unusual and as it pertains to the genus Bulbophyllum, it does not get much more wild than this species. This Bulbo. has a reputation for being very difficult to cultivate, however, I have not found this to be entirely accurate. Although this is not a plant for the beginner, it is much more robust than many people state. In most cases this plant is obtained from sources that have collected them from the wild and is the most probable cause for the reputation. These plants are grown from seedling.
The growth habit alone is fascinating with this species as it wraps around trees in the wild and as it grows you must continue to widen and lengthen the mount, once established it is awesome. The flowers can be anywhere from a light red to a dark nearly purple and have a fairly unpleasant fragrance 😉 All the more reason this plant belongs in your collection. There is much history and fun stories about this species and it really is a very impressive plant to cultivate.

Bulbophyllum blumei

Bulbophyllum blumei

Here is a great species from New Guinea and adjacent islands that is very easy to cultivate and free flowering throughout the year. The plant grows very well mounted or in baskets and has long flower spikes that bloom from the rhizome that hold one masdevalia shaped red flower with a lip that looks like a fang on a hinge, wiggles in the slightest breeze. Plants can be grown in a wide range of conditions and flourish and blooms literally throughout the year.

Bulbophyllum claptonense ‘A-doribil’

Bulbophyllum claptonense ‘A-doribil’

This is quite possibly one of the most beautiful Bulbophyllum I have yet to encounter. The word itself is not typically one that I would use to describe a Bulbophyllum flower but the color matched with the shape and very nice fragrance puts it into an entirely different class.
The colors on these flowers are just outstanding having deep bronze colored petals with black stripes and a purple hinged lip. As stated the fragrance on this species is very sweet, which is unusual for most Bulbophyllums. The flowers are very long lasting and actually open and close for about the first week they are open. A plant this size can bloom multiple times per year and flowers from different locations along the rhizome. This is really an exceptional flower and a bit of a slow grower, however easy to cultivate.

Bulbophyllum echinolabium ‘Lou Dogg’s delight’ AM/AOS

Bulbophyllum echinolabium ‘Lou Dogg’s delight’ AM/AOS

This species is found on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia and is a truly fascinating species. The flowers are very large, over 12″ from tip to tip and bloom sequentially usually for up to 6+ months. Flowers have a very strong fragrance, pretty nasty and have a blood red, brain looking lip on a hinge. Got to love the Bulbo’s this really is a spectacular species.

Bulbophyllum gracillimum ‘Joy’s dancing spider’ AM/AOS

Bulbophyllum gracillimum ‘Joy’s dancing spider’ AM/AOS

It is very difficult to get a flower quality award on this type of Bulbophyllum, much less an AM/AOS. This is a great award and represents the true flower quality of this impressive plant.
The flowers spikes are long, on occasion nearly 12” and hold a perfect circle of multiple red flowers that’s petals dangle down and to me look like a red spider dancing around in a breeze. I guess that sounds a bit strange now that I write this observation, however this flower is really cool and is just another incredible example of the awesome diversity in this genus. This plant is very easy to grow and likes bright intermediate conditions and frequent watering.

BULB-0010

Bulbophyllum cruentum

Bulbophyllum cuentum

Here is a very rare and truly impressive species from Papua New Guinea. This species is in the same group as B. phalaenopsis, spiesii, macrobulbon and a few others. The plants in this group are typically giant with leaves often measuring 3ft+ in length. This is a true miniature species of the group and the plants remain compact. The flowers however are quite large for the plant size and are very reminiscent of B. macrobulbon as they open wide. This particular division blooms with very dark flowers that are thick and deep burgundy but appear nearly black. This species has also proven quite easy to cultivate with intermediate conditions and enjoys frequent irrigation and bright light. If you are a collector of truly awesome Bulbophyllum species this is a must for your collection.

Bulbophyllum longissimum ‘Brent Baker’ FCC-CCE/AOS x Bulbophyllum lasiochilum ‘Black’
Bulbophyllum longissimum ‘Brent Baker’ FCC/AOS-CCE-AOS Bulbophyllum lasiochilum ‘Black’

Here is a remake of this most impressive hybrid using premium genetics. Bulbo. longissimum ‘BB’ FCC-CCE/AOS was awarded the highest award both in flower quality and culture by the American Orchid Society. The plant is exceptional and flowers with petals exceeding 12” in length and is very vigorous and floriferous. The Bulb. lasiochilum ‘Blac”’ is one of the best lasiochilums I have seen. The petals and lip are literally black and the lateral sepals are a very nice dark mottled burgundy, really nice plant and holds flowers nearly twice as large as the leaves. This hybrid has been made and flowered and have seen some great pictures. I’m inclined to think that most have been made with the yellow/brown color form which is more common. These should be exceptional both in flower quality/size and very dark coloration with medium sized flowers on compact plants.

Bulbophyllum longissimum ‘Brent Baker’ FCC-CCE/AOS

Bulbophyllum longissimum ‘Brent Baker’ FCC-CCE/AOS

This species is incredible and this is a division of the awarded plant. It has been awarded both the highest cultural and flower quality award you can receive from the American Orchid Society. This plant was even placed on the front cover of the AOS magazine ORCHIDS. The flowers on this particular plant are a nice salmon color and exceed a foot in length. The species is very easy to grow and bloom and will flower at this size division. This plant flowers like clockwork in the months of October-November after a brief rest in September.

Bulbophyllum Macrobulbon ‘Magnifico’AM/AOS x self

Bulbophyllum Macrobulbon ‘Magnifico’AM/AOS x self

I have bloomed several Bulb. Phalaenopsis, even received a nice cultural award on one, but this species, in particular this plant puts it to shame. I have literally been asked by more people for a division of this plant than any other that I own. I came to the realization a few years ago that this species is simply not available and am proud to be offering seedlings of this magnificent plant.

Bulbophyllum macrobulbon ‘Magnifico’ x Bulb. carunculatum ‘Baker’s rotten lemon’

first to bloom

This cross took many attempts, but finally was able to get a pod. This should really be an excellent cross. The seedlings are very well established and have been out of flask for over 3 years. Have yet to flower the cross but am confident it will not be a disappointment.

Please contact for availability, several sizes are available

Bulbo. bechinolina ‘Rogue Orchids’ x Bulb. Mary Alice Underwood’ Baker’s Best’
Bulbophyllum bechinolina ‘Rogue Orchids’ Bulbophyllum Mary Alice Underwood ‘Baker’s Best’

Here is an incredibly neat and unusual new complex Bulbophyllum hybrid. This is a cross between (B. becarri x echinolabium) which makes bechinolina crossed onto B. Mary Alice Underwood (B. Frank Smith x echinolabium) and the results should be fantastic. Very speculative for sure, however one thing is certain and that is the echinolabium has proven dominance in both crosses and the combination of these two should produce a larger flowers that bloom sequentially on more compact plants. This is an attempt to make a more compact bechinolina with larger lasting much brighter colored flowers. These really should be a nice treat and have already proven incredibly vigorous.

BULB-0016

Bulbophyllum treschii ‘Bill Thoms’

Bulbophyllum treschii

I have had the opportunity to flower a few different clones of this species and this particular one is by far the best. From Mr. Bulbophyllum himself, this plant has bloomed for me year after year with exceptional flowers up to 9” in length.
The flowers themselves have a very interesting rough texture and are a deep merlot color. The species is incredibly easy to grow requiring no rest and blooming from summer through nearly winter. You literally cannot over water this plant and it will quickly grow into a very nice specimen. If you are into rare Bulbophyllum species, this plant will make a very nice addition to your collection.

Bulbophyllum purpureorachis

Bulbophyllum purpureorachis

It really does not get much more unusual and fascinating in the orchid world than it does with this species. The flower spikes on this species are about 2-2.5″ across and can get over 2 feet in height. As they mature they spiral and have small flowers in the center of the spike that open sequentially. The little flowers are very complex and like all/most Bulbophyllum have a hinged lip that wiggles in the slightest breeze. To my knowledge this is the largest and most impressive species in this class of Bulbophyllum. If you enjoy rare and bizarre Bulbophyllum than this species belongs in your collection. Very easy to cultivate and flower. A dry rest from November-May often times will cause this plant to bloom.

Bulbophyllum Sue Blackmore

Bulbophyllum Sue Blackmore

This is a hybrid between Bulb. purpureorchis x Bulb. falcatum. I love this type of Bulbophyllum and this is a hybrid between two of the best. The flower spikes on this hybrid are long near 18″ in length and have small bright orange flowers that open on a dark purple flat stem. The flowers open sequentially and the plant will flower often for several months as the inflorescence/flower spike continues to lengthen. This hybrid, unlike the species purpureorchis is very easy to grow and flower and does not require a defined rest period. The hybrid will thrive in a wide variety of growing conditions.
