    Default Bulbophyllum pectinatum

    Can't claim credit for this as it came in bloom from ________. Its a neat one. Very mild fishy scent that you have to be right on it to smell (or at least I do)

    Fish smell? How strange. I wonder if a fly is the pollinator of this one? It is a really cool looking bloom. Thanks for posting the pic!

    Cheers!

    It is a very faint smell, lol couldnt say specifically what kind of fish, more of a general fishy smell.
