I tend to buy orchids based upon whether I like their foliage (since that's what you see most of the time). Today I purchased my first Cirrhopetalum (a relative to the Bulbophyllum- another genus I haven't tried yet). My purchase was based on liking the slab it's growing on covered in mosses and ferns and the look of the rhizome creeping through it.
There is much new growth as you can see below in the overall view.
I'm wondering if I seperate the new growth (to put on some new slabs) how many bulbs need to be in place to give the new divisions a good start and will the old slab continue to produce bulbs and inflorescences? Like I said, I'm new to orchids related to Bulbophyllum so any tips would be appreciated.
The plant I purchased is specifically:
C. Louis Sander x C. Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' (Au/1045)
Thanks for any info! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
