Bulbophyllum appendiculatum is a species from India and Nepal. In the wild this species inhabits shady seasonal forests. Inflorescences measure c5 cm, emerge from the bases of the growths and bear a solitary flower which measures 12-13 cm. Plants bloom during the autumn and are scented.


This plant is flowering size and is growing on a mount or in a pot. Please tell us which you prefer, otherwise will pick either. Grow Bulbophyllum appendiculatum on a mount or in a pot and use a sphagnum moss and fine bark mix as a media. Make sure the plant gets sufficient air movement particularly when gown in humidity above 70%; always ensure that humidity is sufficiently high and give the plant bright light. Plants need to be grown wet; I have no concerns when my plant pots are sitting in a small amount of water particularly in summer and the mounted plants get sprayed at least once every day. This species likes an intermediate to warm greenhouse with night low temperatures of 15-20 degrees and daytime temperatures of 25-31 degrees. Plants will grow indoors if humidity and air circulation are provided.
