    When I saw the long internodes of Bulb. scaberulum, I decided a wire basket would be the best way to cultivate it. That way I could tie the new growths to the outside of the basket. But because this plant is an untidy rampant grower now there are growths on the side of the basket, on top of the basket and on the bottom. I tied some of the new leads to the sides, it was the plant that sent growths into the top and bottom of the basket. Also, there would have been a fair number of leads growing into the air if I didn't keep attaching them to the basket. The plant have been producing one or two inflorescences at a time for the last few months.

    I should have done that to mine. I just let it grow wild and make divisions. Great looking plant Bulbophyllum scaberulum.JPG Bulbophyllum scaberulum2.JPG

    What a beautiful plant! I wonder if I should take a few divisions and put them in an even larger mount. Your plant tells me this plant has the potential to make a huge specimen plant, bigger that I ever thought.
