Bulbophyllum is a very large genus in the orchid family, native to tropical areas, and found on all continents except Antarctica. It is a very diverse group of orchids, but all are epiphytes with creeping rhizomes, and the inflorescence always rises from the base of the pseudobulb, never from its sides or top. Flowers vary widely from species to species. Some have no fragrance, others a pleasant one, and still others are quite malodorous. Many are miniatures, and many are exceptionally attractive.
Many orchid growers have heard of the genus, but do not grow it because they know only of a few foul-smelling, rambling plants with small flowers. However, bulbophyllums can be very attractive additions to any orchid collection thanks to their unusual form, flowers, and color combinations.
Bulbophyllums and Their Allies, the first book devoted solely to this genus of 2,700 published species, is an introductory guide for amateur and advanced orchid growers. Emily S. Siegerist focuses on those species likely to be cultivated, including 375 Bulbophyllum species and 170 related species and hybrids. Her goal is "to give you enough information to have a good chance of success with most bulbophyllums and, after a bit of experience, enough knowledge to know which species to avoid." For each described plant, the author gives practical suggestions on how best to grow that plant in cultivation.
