    Does anyone have bulbophyllum myrmecochilum? I have one that is tagged as such, and it just kind of grows. Every once in a while, it will give me a new growth, but it isn't a very vigorous grower. I attribute that to culture issues. If anyone can provide culture tips (or an information source), I'd greatly appreciate it.

    TIA!

    That's funny Ron. My information says Southeastern section of US. I got a Bulb phal from Joe with 4 new leads, it now has 8.

    He knows I will bloom it. He just has to decide if that is ok with him.
