    Very cool bloom! I think this shape (and the medusae one) are my favorite bulbo shapes.

    Cheers,

    I have one of these, but alas, it has yet to bloom for me. Can you post a picture of the whole plant for comparison? Also, what is your culture for this one?

    Geoffrey, I have it mounted on a treefern slab with a Sphag pad beneath to hold some more water while it is getting established. I have it in bright shade. I water it 3-4 times a week at this time of the year.

    I went through my older photos and here are pics that shows parts of the plant
