    Yes, I do.
    I have this plant, too. I love the bulbo... it blooms absolutely stunning!
    My bulbo is mounted on tree fern slab with sphagnum moss. The plant likes warmth and humidity and light shade.
    My plant bloomed 3 weeks ago.



    And here they are both!

    B.plumatum's inflorescence is gorgeous! Flowers are 7" long!

    Both look great. The shorter one is awesome, I can see why you love it. Does the longer one have a scent , too? I have heard some of the bulbo's can stink.

    Yes, you are right! Some of the bulbo's really stink. For example, b.annandalei stinks terrible! Like rotting fish guts with sugar. My plant bloomed in August-September with 3 spikes. The "worst" was the second spike which had 7 flowers. When I came into my orchid house once in the morning, I thought there was a big dead frog somewhere under the shelves. But some of them really smell nice! I love my b. macranthum which smells sweet with some of clove. B.lepidum has an OK scent, too; I'd say it smells of camomile.
