    Smile Bulbo frostii

    Since bulbos have been such a hot topic lately and my first bulbo has arrived in hand, I thought I would show it off.

    Looks rather healthy right now. Let's see if I can keep it this way. Or make it bloom even.

    It's larger than my frostii was when I recieved it...that was about four years ago I think. It has grown quite a bit but no sign of blooming yet. I think these probably need to be good sized plants before they will put on their shoes!

    I bought it mounted on a piece of hardwood. It cost $18.99 plus shipping (I bought 3 different orchids so shipping was a better deal, at least that is my story and I'm sticking to it!)
