    I'm not real familiar with bulbos, so looked up a bunch of pictures...what fun!
    I really liked a lot of these guys...I may have to try some myself. But I esp. liked echinolabium & lobii.
    Thanks!

    Some very nice options there. While I have always liked echinolabium, personally I love the spotting on refractilingue

    If you don't have the bulbo lobii - get that one. So pretty.

    Cheers,

    If stink doesn't bother you, I'd go for echinolabium

    I might probably buy 1 to celebrate every sunday, but I also need to know which one to lay my hands on. I need priority list

    Cheers

    Bulbophyllum uniflorum? I almost laid my hands on it the last time. The condition of the plant is pretty bad. Bad case of fungal attack and losing a lot of leaves due to the endless torrential rain recently. The Bulbophyllum refractilingue is the same. Bulbophyllum brienianum is flowering though and the Bulbophyllum fascinator has 12 flowers on a palm size plant.
