    Default Bulbophyllums seen at a Mini Orchid Show

    Last Thursday 10 Oct, feeling very bored after having been house-bound for some time, my wife and I decided to visit an orchid show held at one of our local universities in conjunction with their convocation. I was hoping that I could get some plants from the vendors there - but no such luck as there was only one vendor selling mostly potted plants and young fruit trees. It was a very small show and except for the few Bulbophyllums, Paphios and some very good Phal bellina, there wasn't much to see.

    All are beautiful, but that dendrobium is amazing! WOW. I've never seen such a compact dendrobium orchid so covered with blooms.

    cheers,

    Hey,

    Nice flowers but I think the B.echinolabium is a hybrid instead. The B.longissimum looks more like Bulbophyllum Fascination. Well, just my 2 cents.

    Most probably iare hybrids. I got the names from some visitor to the show. No names were displayed on the exhibits. I know very little about bulbos.
