    Default Bulbo suggestions?

    OK, I think I'd like to try a bulbo or two. I am looking for suggestions for ones that are easy, attractive, and not one of the ones with unpleasant smells, please.

    Once you start collecting bulbos, it is hard to stop. I added two just last week. I won't offer suggestions since I only have between 6 and 10 bulbos, but they sure are fun to grow.

    Thank goodness thats not true of orchids in general!



    bulbophylum lepidum, huh? I just looked it up...pretty cute. And I like the words free-flowering, so I'll keep an eye for that one.

    Any other suggestions...I kinda like the pointy ones...

    Hey,

    Maybe you can try Bulbophyllum medusae or maybe the hybrid Elizabeth Ann. Both are beautiful.

    Anyways, I chanced upon Bulbophyllum psittacoglossum today, well, guess what, its hanging on my wall now

    Cheers

    It should be bulbophyllum dearei...

    Personally, I would go for bulb. dearei more than bulb. lobii, of course if you can get both, its for the best

    Maybe these can be quite easy as well...

    Bulbophyllum grandiflorum
    Bulbophyllum fascinator
    Bulbophyllum vaginatum
    Bulbophyllum tingabarinum

    Cheers
