Introducing the Bulbophyllum Megaclinium var. maximum – a breathtaking miniature orchid that will captivate orchid enthusiasts and collectors alike. This exquisite specimen comes rooted and well established in a 2-inch small plastic pot, ready to grace your collection with its unique charm.

Temperature: This miniature Bulbophyllum orchid thrives in warm conditions, requiring a minimum night temperature of 65°F during winter. If sourced from temperate regions, a slightly cooler environment by 5-10 degrees is recommended. Ensure a gentle air movement to mimic its natural habitat.

Light: Give your Bulbophyllum Megaclinium var. maximum a home with moderate to bright light. Higher light levels, without leaf damage, have shown to encourage better and more frequent blooming, making it a dazzling addition to your orchid collection.

Water and Humidity: Hailing from humid rainforests, this orchid prefers a humidity level of 60%. While achieving this outside a greenhouse can be challenging, frequent watering is the key to a thriving plant. Whether mounted or potted, this Bulbophyllum welcomes wetter conditions compared to most orchids. Adjust watering for species from temperate regions, allowing dry periods when needed.

Potting: Bulbophyllum species are low-maintenance when it comes to repotting. Choose from mounting on tree fern or cork slabs, well-draining baskets, or pots, considering the long rhizomes of some species. Optimal potting media includes sphagnum moss, coir (coconut chips or fibers), and tree fern.

Culture: Embrace a warm to hot environment for your orchid, ensuring it stays moist during the summer. However, come winter, provide a distinctive drying period for robust growth in spring. Keep the potting media dry and mist occasionally, while maintaining good air movement to prevent fungal growth. Shade-loving, this orchid is best suited for shaded areas.

Origin: The Bulbophyllum Megaclinium var. maximum can be found across tropical Africa, thriving as a lithophyte and epiphyte in open woodlands and riverine forests at elevations ranging from 600 to 2100 meters.

Flowering: Experience the beauty of fall as this orchid produces several petite flowers measuring .75 cm each. The plant's inflorescence emerges from a mature pseudobulb, showcasing a mesmerizing display of musky-scented blooms along a 20-inch or longer erect stem.

Winter Care: Give your orchid the distinct dry period it craves during winter. Allow some pseudobulb shriveling, promoting robust growth in the upcoming spring.

Size and Distribution: This miniature-sized marvel can be found in various African regions, including Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Liberia, Nigeria, Gabon, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Zaire, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Angola.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Dive into the fascinating world of orchid cultivation with the Bulbophyllum Megaclinium var. maximum – a jewel of nature waiting to flourish in your care.
