Introducing the exquisite Bulbophyllum longisepalum, a true gem hailing from the lush forests of New Guinea. As a pseudobulbous epiphyte, it thrives in the moist embrace of tropical biomes, embodying nature's artistry with its cream-colored sepals adorned in intricate tessellations of red-purple.

Cultivating this botanical marvel is a delightful journey for enthusiasts seeking to bring a touch of the exotic into their homes. Here are some essential tips to ensure your Bulbophyllum longisepalum flourishes:

  1. Environment: Recreate the humid, tropical conditions of its native habitat by providing ample moisture and warmth. A well-ventilated area with indirect sunlight is ideal.

  2. Potting Medium: Opt for a well-draining mix such as orchid bark or sphagnum moss to mimic the epiphytic conditions it prefers. Ensure good airflow around the roots to prevent rot.

  3. Watering: Keep the potting medium consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water thoroughly when the top layer feels dry, allowing excess water to drain away.

  4. Lighting: Provide filtered or indirect light to prevent leaf burn while promoting healthy growth and flowering. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day.

  5. Temperature: Maintain a warm environment with temperatures ranging between 70°F to 85°F (21°C to 29°C) during the day and slightly cooler nights. Protect from drafts and temperature fluctuations.

  6. Fertilization: Feed your Bulbophyllum longisepalum with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season. Reduce or cease fertilization during dormancy.

With proper care and attention, your Bulbophyllum longisepalum will reward you with its captivating blooms in late spring to summer. Each inflorescence, borne on an erect stem emerging between the pseudobulbs, showcases a single radiant flower, a testament to nature's elegance.

This is a blooming size imported bare root orchid; newly repotted in a 4" pot; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!
