Bulbophyllum Lepidum

"Bulbophyllum Lepidum"

I met my friend Heather at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia to shoot Saturday. Towards the end of our shoot, we decided to go into the Conservatory to see what we could find. I stated earlier that Heather has eyes like a hawk because she usually spots things before I do. It was no different when we went into the Conservatory.

She noticed a very small orchid called bulbophyllum lepidum—it’s only an inch long! It can be found in Cambodia, Indonesia. Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, India and Vietnam, but I don’t have to travel to those places to see it. Thanks to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia!
