No Glass Ceiling ....

A climbing vine in a glasshouse will soon hit an invisible wall.
Exposed to the wild elements and truly free....the sky's the limit.

Despite its name, Bulbophyllum singaporeanum is likely extinct in our little island nation. Like many Bulbophyllums, the inflorescence is fetid - smelling like salted fish.

Hei.. just stumble across your blog.. wonderful photos. I am into bulbos too. Still green and learning slowly... thanks for the photo of the singaporeanum in situ... i have trouble getting this fellow to grow properly... from your photo, it looks like the fellow wants a dry but humid environment.
