    Beautiful!, It looks like a stinker does it have an odour at all? I love the colour and markings.

    form, it stinks. I mean, these guys, no matter how beautiful they are, can be very disgusting olfactorily.

    I compare them to rotten seashells or other seafood left out in the sun for a week.

    I was in the farm and hadn't known that B. papulosum stank. The first time I complained, my caretaker told me it might be droppings of monitor lizards, as he had seen several in the area. The second time, I was taking photos of them and came very close to the blooms. That was when I recoiled in disgust.

    They both look very nice, but I think I am just going to enjoy their beauty on the pictures you posted...

    They both are really cool. I guess here is one time that I don't wish for the ability to 'sniff' the blooms through the computer. lol!

    Cheers,

    are you sure it is not a different species but related? I would have expected a longer spike. Does the labellum have the papillae??

    Could be.

    But it came with the batch of papulosums, and I consulted Jim Cootes. I guess I took the easy way out, lol.
