    Kathi get the Bulb lobbi from Sabah, Borneo, this is the most easiest plant to grow and flower. Bulbophyllum species is seasonal maybe bloom 3 to 4 times a year. Do not try B. beccarrii or B. phalaenopsis or similar family very difficult.

    Thanks, zain. Sounds like lobbi would be a good one to start with. I will try to find one next time I am ordering. They are all just so darn cute!

    Well, the last lecturer at our OS meeting had some lobbi, but the plants were small and I decided to bypass them. Then, recently I saw a bulbo masdevalliaceum online, and it just arrived.

    First pic is my new plant...it is in a 4" basket, but overgrowing it on all sides. About 20+ bulbs, and nice and healthy looking. I am excited!!!
    Second pix is what it should look like in bloom.

    No pics, but from what you describe. Awesome. Normally, its hard for me to get cuttings of 20+ bulbs unless they are small plants.

    Anyways, congrats on a good acquisition. Next time we might be able to swap cuttings

    Maybe! Sorry, it took me two tries to get the pix loaded.
    I just can't wait til it blooms...supposedly it blooms several times a year.

    Yup. I think the vendor said it is related to, and possibly a variation of, blumei.

    I am thinking that it is happy in its basket, and I should leave it be for now, despite the fact it is overgrowing the basket. What do you think?
