Bulbophyllum becarii is a must have for any collector of wild orchid especially in Bulbophyllum fan. This species native to Borneo with gigantic leave! Actually, I tried several time to grow this species. The leaves will shrinking from time to time and gone. At last, I found a technique how to grow this pretty species and would like to share it with you. Hopefully, it will help you, especially for the beginner.
Here the latest look of my Bulbophyllum becarii. This plant will produce a bigger leave from time to time. The enlargement of the leave is the important sign that you give a correct growing condition. I grow this plant 2 years ago with only 2 leaves.
The comparison between the new leave with the MYR 1 note.
Here the technique! I will put a sphagnum moss at the 'pocket' of the new leave produced. The sphagnum will give a longer moist condition.
