Orchid and Flower Photography and Talks by Ron Parsons


Although this huge genus of over a thousand species is in a state of taxonomic disarray, most growers can at least identify them in bloom as a Bulbophyllum due to the hinged lip (and often malodorous flowers). These plants are popular with many hobbyists due to their fantastic blooms of many shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. Bulbophyllums are found on every continent where orchids grow, but the majority are found in tropical Asia.  Usually considered to be warm or hot growing, there are many that will grow intermediate and even some that are cool tolerant. This presentation features a nice cross-section of this amazing group of orchids.
