Repotting creeping Bulbophyllum Orchids & tips on suitable setups
Today we tedn for my Bulbophyllum Orchids which are starting to grow outside of the pot!
🦋 More info below! 🦋
Bulbophyllum orchids are a very interesting group of orchids, but some can pose some difficulties for growers who cultivate them in pots. They will outgrow their pot pretty fast, as they have a creeping growth pattern.
To accommodate their needs, growers use all sorts of setups: mounts, shallow dishes or trays, baskets and other setups!

I am going for a wide, shallow pot in a decorative container. If I so desire to transform it in self watering, I can do so afterwards 😛
