    Default Thinking of trying a Bulbo or two

    I'm going to mount some of my dwarf phals shortly but I would also like to try a Bublo or two that is nice and compact and would work in an apartment with less than optimal humidity at 40-60% throughout the year. Any recommendations are appreciated.

    EDIT: Preferably something that smells nice. Both species or hybrids are okay.

    Thanks Ron. That one seems pretty cute and smells nice too

    How difficult is Dinema/Encyclia polybulbon?

    Looks like Bulbo. lasiochilum and Enc. polybulbon should work for me. I think they have them locally.

    Have you ever tried aquarium filter pads for mounting? It looks kinda like epiweb so I might try it out.
