Bulbophyllum fritilliflorum produces large red flowers to 10cm. It belongs to the Section Hyalosema in the genus Bulbophyllum. A robust, warm to intermediate, showy species that will climb up a treefern slab or wrap around a basket.
The flowers are oddly shaped, rather like a very large beak, dorsal and sepals intricately veined and almost translucent ruby red against the light. Will take maximum water and fertiliser while in active growth, with maximum light short of sunburn.
A warm tropical species from New Guinea.
