    Default A miniature mini

    I removed about 5" of old dried out rhizome and pb's on this one so it is an adult plant. The pb's are about 3 mm in diameter with a single leaf. I have no info on it at all. Please understand that I am not expecting an ID on any of these plants but if someone were to point me in the right direction it would be a great help.

    Yes, I think Bulbo is the place to start. Cute little thing.

    Thank you very much!! I'll tag it as such and hopefully it will flower and that will tell the tale!

    Plant habit and size looks like it could be bulbo purpurascens.

    Could very well be Li. The pictures I could find of purpurascens show it as having ovate pb while the pb on this one are actually round or even compressed laterally but that could just be a clonal difference. I'm going to list it as that until it flowers, hopefully. Thank you!

    The shape of the bulbs on bulbophyllum can differ according to growing conditions.
