    Default Lepidum?

    I got this as a species NOID at the show I attended this past weekend. There were quite a few around at different vendors and none were ID'd. It was inexpensive considering the size of the plant and I am getting quite interested in the bulbos, so I brought it home. Smells pretty strange. Sorta musty, sexual, and dark. But I can't get past wanting another whiff of it...maybe that says more about me than the plant but oh well! Is this a lepidum?

    Hope someone can give you a positive id it for you, Jason. I would keep it even without the name.

    Cheers,
