    Very nice, Howard. I need to add this species to my collection, as well.

    Brandon, do you have many Bulbophyllum or are you just starting to collect these?

    I have several now (echinolabium, medusae, rothschildianum, graveolens, tingabarinum, sumatranum, phalaenopsis, maximum, psychoon and I think a couple of others). I had a Bulb. fletcherianum seedling that did well for awhile and then got rot and I couldn't save it. Bulbophyllum has quickly become one of my favorite genera.

    Very nice howard! Looks like a nice compact grower. Is it ... er... "fragrant"?

    Thanks Brandon. I have just started with these guys because I've gotten somewhat tired of the Phals.
    In addition to this little guy, I have Cirr sikkimense, dentiferum, makoyanum, Elizabeth Ann Buckleberry, B. carunculatum, lasiochilum, guttulatum, pandulatum, habrotinum, macranthum, factum, orthoglossum, echinolabium, medusae, annandalei, Frank Smith and Jersey.

    Hey Paul, it is compact and grows like a weed but so far I haven't put my nose close enough to notice a scent. And even if it did, I've currently got some nodosa crosses that just smell wonderful!

    This is one I have been drooling over for some time. Havent found one I like yet. I'd like a piece of the one Tom Mirenda brought from the Smithsonian collection. I wonder if he would give me a cutting?

    Jeff, what do you mean, "Haven't found one I like, yet." And what did/does Tom's look like?
