Native to India, this is one of the best examples of this species around. Named for Walter Rothschild of Tring Park, England, it is perhaps one of the finest of the Bulbophyllum, with this particular clone 'Red Chimney' being the best there is. The large, deep red umbells emerge in late October to November and produce stunning arrays of flowers.
The flowers have a rocking lip, making this comic-looking flower have a strange alien face appearance, with a tongue that is sticking out at you as the lip rocks back and forth. This is a plant we have owned for many years, and it is the original plant that we have grown and divided.
This plant is easy to grow and flower, and prefers intermediate to warm conditions with bright light. There is a slight fragrance of fresh fish, but it is not offensive, and you have to get your face right up to the flower to smell it.
