    Default Bulbophyllum cruentum

    I was explaining the different section of Bulbophyllums to a friend of mine at my growing area. When I started to talk about the Macrobulbom family, I lifted up my B.cruentum and lo and behold, a ping pong size flower bud stared at me. I have missed it all the while, hidden between leaves. I will post the flowers again when it opens.



    Cheers
    Vincent

    Another surprise that comes to me is that Catasetum tenebrosum wakes up from its slumber...

    Wow, that's a deep red bud! I assume this will be quite the stinker?

    One of my favorite Bulbophyllums (and at the top of my Bulbo. wish list >_<); can't wait to see the bloom!
