    This listing is for Bulbophyllum trachyanthum. Well-established near blooming size seedling plant in a 2" pot. These plants are ready for mounting or hanging baskets (either is preferable to a pot for adult plants). Very Limited!

    The flowers on this species seem to set off some primitive reflex in the brain that makes you do a double-take when you see it. It's partially camouflaged but when you finally see it you have to take a closer look. It's like a snake in a shadow, you may not see it but when you do it's all you see!

    The 3" flowers have a white background with a purple lattice-like pattern on the upper sepal and purple spots on the lower fused sepals. The tiny top petals have long, whisker-like extensions that hang over the top of the lip like a serpent's tongue. 

    The plant is small and very compact for a Bulbophyllum.

    Care: Cool-warm temps, Year-round regular watering and partial shade.
