Tiny Tim - an unknown Bulbophyllum


Bulbophyllum membranaceum aff - origin Sabah. The tiny plant flower en-mass. There are about a hundred flowers in my clump - but they are tiny and testing the capability of my 150mm.

Any suggestions are welcome.

What an intriguing bloom -- your camera did a great job of capturing the essence of this little flower.

Don't recognise it at all. There is a list of all the spp of this genus:

but can't match this one. Great photo though, considering its size. Nothing to be ashamed of there. Might be worth listing its growing conditions as this must be rare in cultivation.

its grown like most orchid I have - hot (not below 24 degC) and humid (>80%). The flowering was likely triggered by recent downpours in noon. It grows rapidly and I have a nice clump after several years from a few strands of cuttings.
