Bulbophyllum ambrosia Schltr. 1919


Bulbophyllum ambrosia (Hance) Schltr. 1919 is a lithophytic growing, small sized orchid species, native to South China and Vietnam.

Bulbophyllum ambrosia has been primarily categorised by the English botanist and diplomat Henry Fletcher Hance (1827 - 1886) as Eria ambrosia Hance 1883.
The sweet-scented flowers reach a size of about 3 cm. Flowering period: Winter. Bulbophyllum ambrosia orchids are protected by CITES Appendix II (trade controlled to avoid use incompatible with species survival). The tropical orchid requires a warm - hot, humid climate, a shady location and a good air cirulation to avoid fungal infections. Plants should be kept moist, but not wet. Waterings should be restricted during the winter rest.

I find your site very interesting. I am always looking for new data to add to my website to enhance it as well as new species to grow and collect.

I love orchids.
