    maybe also depends on the geographical location on where you are......here the B. macranthum, lobii and sumantrana are quite easily obtainable so usually i prefer some from other country...perhaps the grass over the other side is always greener

    im really fortunate to have a seller that always has a huge selection for ultra cheap... they may just be 4/5 pbulbs usually bareroot but they are always very healthy and CHEAP... i wasnt always a bulbo fan, but somehow i seem to have a rapidly growing collection!!!

    I would definitely go for Bulb. echinolabium if I was you. I have both the species and Bulb. Jersey, which is the primary hybrid between Bulb. echinolabium x lobii. The size and colour of the flowers give them a big WOW! factor, though it's best not to grow Bulb. echinolabium indoors unless you lack a sense of smell. I used to grow Bulb. lobii and even though it has spectacular flowers, I got bored of remounting it every two years due to the long rhizome it produces between pseudobulbs (4 to 6 inches is normal for this species). Bulb. echinolabium and its hybrids have closely-set pseudobulbs so you can grow them either on small mounts or in pots, which is a bonus when you're running low on free space.

    Wow, thanks for the reply but that post was from a long long time ago.

    I do have Bulbophyllum echinolabium now, 2 of them from different localities. I also have about 200 over species of Bulbophyllum in my collection now

    My hands are always itchy for more species but my space constraint stops me

    Cheers

    I voted arfakianum , its interesting and unique. However Lobii is great too. All the rest typical in my opinion. One not listed I found great is Bulbophyllum Virescens this one gets my 10000000% yes!!!!!!!!!
