    Hello all! I am considering getting a few Bulbos but don't want the smelly varieties. Can anyone give me a list of some that have a nice fragrance? Much appreciated!

    Most bulbos are not that smelly unless you sniff them up real close.. If I'm not mistaken, most of the lobbii complex is un-smelly.. Just avoid the big stinkers like echinolabium, carunculatum, virescens and beccarii.. lol
