    I purchased this plant from Tropical Exotique a couple years back and this is the first bloom. I believe the color lives up it’s name. Should be a warm grower, but seems to have no issues with int/cool conditions. No leaf drop or bacterial spotting as some other warmer growing Bulbophyllum species experienced under my conditions.

    Very nice color! I got one from them a couple years ago, but it isn't close to blooming. But I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    Very nice! I got one some time back, but it hasn't bloomed yet.

    Beautiful, true to its name, I hear it's a recent discovery in the last decade. I'm contemplating getting one - what would you say your minimum temperatures it's been growing in without getting 'cold' spots.

    Thanks...I would say Winter nights 11-12 C ( 52-54 F) without any spots at all. I have two other clones that are younger and also show no spots. In the Summer I try and keep as cool as possible, but seems nights are 13-14 C (56-58 F)
