Common Name Myola Bulbophyllum [An area in Papua and New Guinea]

Flower Size 3/4" [2 cm]

Found in New Guinea as an epiphyte with close set pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical leaf that blooms on a 2 3/8" [6 cm] long, basal, single flowered inflorescence that is subtended by scarious sheaths and holds the flower against the pseudobulb. This species is hot to cool growing and needs to be potted in a loose medium and given deep shade, frequent waterings and good air movement.
