Bulbophyllum lasiochilum Parish & Rchb.f 1874, the yellow form, easy to cultivate and and a vigorous grower under my local climatic conditions

This species grows quite well in my locality.  This is the yellow form.  You can also see the "red" form which also goes by the name of Bulbophyllum breviscaphum.  The only problem this species poses for the average hobbyist is keeping the plant under control as the long internodes can result in the new growths being produced in the air instead of attached to the mount.  If well cared for this plant can produce an untidy mass of small pseudobulbs, some of which will be entirely detached from the mount.  I have written several articles about this plant and they can be found elsewhere in this blog.
