    Check your PM...I linked you to a vendor with cultural information on these plants. I've noticed them in the past when browsing the catalog. They are both very unusual species. The Mormolyca bloom looks a bit like the Bulbophyllum carunculatum, but I'm sure doesn't stink as much!

    Thanks Matt,

    It's actually quite unusual, similar to bulbo's yes, but without the hinged lip. I've seen pictures of them around but have never seen it in real life... I've always wanted one so when the opportunity at an auction came up, had to grab it... there was a bloom on it, but it was/is past it's best....and no smell to speak of.

    cheers
