    Default Bulbophyllum question?

    I just acquired a bulbo cross (Bulbophyllum fascinator X Bulbophyllum guttalatum). I was wondering if anybody has ever grown this cross, I'm really excited to see what the flowers look like. If anybody has any pics please share, thanks.

    Thanks BD, I saw a picture of Bulbo. fascinator on here before I bought the cross and thought wow that is one crazy orchid. Bulbo guttulatum is equally as unique. I wish the vendor had more as this was the only one. Unfortunately its still young so it may be a while before it blooms, I'll be sure to post pics if that ever happens.

    Should be a really unique orchid bloom.
