    Tom your flower is not hanging upside down...you are walking on the wrong surface

    My mount is lying on the bench so the flower does not know which direction to turn...yours knows...do u like the fragrance?

    Ron, my feet are firmly planted on terra firma and I'd like to know when you expect to divide off my 3-bulb contribution to my new heart-throb collection of Bulbophyllum? Something that knock-dead gorgeous needs some new friends in my GH...it could help keep the others in line and teach them what is expected of a proper Bulbo!!!! So is it in the mail, yet...is it .... is it

    Howard...are you waiting by the mailbox???? If this plant did not adhere so well to the treefern I might be able to get a division. Will take a closer look

    Ron, you have to go visit it at night, turn on the lights and scar the Beegeezus out of it and its little feet will suddenly let go as if to run off and hide its pseudobulbs!!!!!

    So pretty. I like the coloring and the spots. The water on the bloom makes it look even better!

    Cheers,
