One of my favorite bulbophyllums found in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, where I traveled a few years ago, is Bulbophyllum affine. Small-sized, warm- to cool-growing, this bulbophyllum blooms in June. It is found from 100 – 1,800 meters (300-6,000 feet) in the tropical valleys. Bhutan has over 485 species of orchids recorded. Luckily for Bhutan, Stig Dalström is working with the National Biodiversity Center in Thimphu, and more orchids are being discovered and described. Photographer is Eric Hunt, and the plant was grown by OrchidMania.
