BULBOPHYLLUM : With nearly 3000 species this is one of the largest genera in the orchid family with a widespread distribution. They grow well in high humidity, moderate warmth and some shade – good light is needed for flowering. Botanists are attempting to subdivide the Bulbophyllum genus into more manageable units. There are already more than 70 sections. Name changes pending.
