Bulbophyllum corolliferum J.J.Sm. 1917



I photographed this orchid in a friend's shadehouse.  This plant is grown under light shade in a very humid and hot location a few hundred feet from the seashore.  The plant is grown a few inches over some large outdoors aquariums which maintain a very high humidity microclimate even in the dry season.  However the humidity is not stifling as during the day there is a breeze from the sea and during the night the direction of the breeze reverses.
