    It is way too small to do anything now, Zach. If it grows, we might be able to work something out.

    I did find a surviving piece of B quadrichaete in the greenhouse. At least that is what it is labeled. I've had it for a few years, but it isn't thriving. I am growing it intermediate, mounted, daily water moderate light. I tried one potted and warmer, it died. I would love to hear a success story.

    It was very wet there on trays with life moss

    You are not talking about this particular species, right?

    Piotr, unfortunately that culture can't be for all species from PNG. I am asking for specific, first-hand culture info for this Bulbo. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Tom I have the flora malaesiana cd rom for bulbophyllum and I can look on there for some info. I believe I have seen a pic of it in-situ and it appears to be growing fairly exposed on a moss covered branch.
