    Smile Bulbophyllum grandiflora

    Hi this is bulbophyllum grandiflorum, initially the tag was bulbophyllum rothcildianum but during the spikes came out I was wandering doesn't look like rotchildianum, could be arfakianum or grandiflorum. Anyway the blooms not that bad but still frustrated.Hope you enjoy this one.
