This way they get submerged twice a day, my buces are starting to fill in the rocks like they would in nature so I'm hoping this will as well. I actually have started putting small peices of buce rhizome in different parts of the tank to see if it will just start growing in a natural way in these spots, when I pulled the big Schismatoglottis out i found a couple buce plants I didn't even know were planted so I'm wondering if eventually I might get some spontaneous growth from small peices of plant.

As long as you have at least a node or two in each pieces of rhizome, I am fairly certain that plantlets will sprout. I find multiplying buces faster this way, especially if you planted them submerged. Each trimmed rhizome will sprout multiple side shoots.

This is the first bulbophyllum that spiked under my care. It reminds me of the first time I had a crypt send a spathe. By looking at the leaf shape and size, any idea of what species this is? This was from Borneo. The pot is 4 inches for size reference.

Maybe someone else may disagree but I think an ID is going to be impossible without a photo of the bloom.

Hey Xue,

Do you keep your bulbophyllum in an enclosed tank, just like your crypts? I've seen bulbophyllum on display here in Hawaii just in open air. I know it's more humid here but looks like yours if very damp. Good job on the spike!

Default FYI: Crypt. sp. Bukit Ibam "Yellow Ring"

For those who received a Crypt sp. "Bukit Ibam" from me, Jan had recently described this as a natural hybrid between c nurii and c cordata.

Sorry for the late reply Steve. I didn't see your question until now.
The bulbo was grown in the open in my living room. The spike dried (probably due to central air running) out so I am growing it in a enclosed container to maintain a 70-80% humidity.
