    Wow, thanks for lead Rogier, I can see that the second pic resembles a liparis. I will try to make it flower again to confirm. For the 3rd, its really weird, when i bought it, I try not to make any assumption since it is placed with alot of species NOIDs phalaenopsis, oncidiums, bulbophyllums and whatnot. Thanks again..

    The plant on your first pic is certainly a bulbo. To me it looks like some species related to B. ovalifolium. It could be ovalifolium which is a very nice species but since it is from Malaysia it could also very well be a little stunner like B. stormii.

    The second plant to me looks more like a liparis. But who can tell for sure. maybe someone that knows the exact species very well.

    The third one is really an odd one, hard to tell. It could be a bulbo but there are also quite some Epigeneium species that look like this. And personally I would suggest its a Epigeneium.

    Very exiting. Like a christmas present that opens real slooooowly.

    @ Jordam
    I only wish that your native Bulbo. pygmaeum was in culture here in europe.
    Seeing that species in nature would make a trip to New Zealand worth it


    i dont know...... the flowers very rarely open up fully, mostly only partially for self pollination. but still, whole colonies can cover entire branches, even trunks of trees, a sight worth seeing. i am due to go to the bush an a couple of days, so i will see what i can find and post some pics.
    If you are VERY lucky rogier, i may be able to get some seeds sown in sterile flasks, then ship them out to you. have no idea how long it will take or if i can even get it done as it is illegal here to cultivate native species, when it should be encouraged to preven extinction of some.
