A creeping species that likes a piece of treefern to climb or a shallow tray or basket to clamber around. Bulbophyllum patens comes from Thailand, likes a warm climate and when in growth, needs lots of water and fertiliser.
Like most Bulbophyllums, the plant likes a well drained media that will stay damp but not wet. Ensure maximum sunlight and a drier winter as Bulbophyllums do not like to be wet and cold.
Once established, most of this genus are hardy, easy to grow and seldom bothered by insect pests.
