Bulbophyllum inconspicuum is a perennial orchid inhabiting trunks or rocks in evergreen forests in mountainous regions. Rhizomes creep sideways, sparsely making pseudobulbs on the way, and bear single leaves at the end. The leaves are oval-oblong, measuring 1-3cm in length, fleshy and thick. Flower stalks emerge from the bases of pseudobulbs and set single yellowish-white flowers. Bloom time: June-July.
