Cultivation:

Plants are difficult to grow in cultivation because of their difficulty in establishment. They require shade and cool to intermediate temperatures depending on the species. Plants require high air circulation to prevent fungal rot and constant misting. Water twice a week during the winter and heavily mist during the summer. Plants can be grown in sphagnum moss but are usually mounted. When mounting keep the plant loose on the slab as they do not like their roots bounded. Keep humidity high.

0 Bulbophyllum discolor Schltr.

"Very nice form of Bulbophyllum discolor Schltr. from section Peltopus with coloured petals and outward curved apical portion of the lateral sepals. This is a highly variable species found growing in the lower montane forest of New Guinea (450-3100m). The flowers can vary from entirely dark purple, to a yellowish white with dark purple veins, to this light yellow with faint purple veins. This plant, like many others from this section, is free flowering throughout the year with highly reflective flowers that appear to be glittering to the naked eye. The flowers also dwarf the pseudobulb and leaves in comparative size and last 5-6 days. Plant habit is so similar to B. tentaculiferum that it is very easy to mistake the two; but many of you will see the similarities in the flowers of B. triaristella, which is in the same section."
