5.5"-6.5" Flowering Size - NOT In-Spike ($75.00)

Native to India, this is still 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 Bulbophyllums. The large deep red umbells of flowers emerge in late October to November and produce stunning arrays of flowers. This plant is easy to grow and flower and prefers intermediate to warm conditions. Grow as for Phalaenopsis but in slightly brighter conditions.


Our 3-growth bare-root cuttings are off of a large mature plant, ready to be repotted.


Our $75 potted plants are multi-growth. (Usually larger than stock photo.)

An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
