    hi alana,
    yes, the labellum is somehow attached to the spike.

    thanks, your pix and plant was impressive too!

    This plant is beautiful but it stinks...

    I bought a clump with no flowers in this specimen and just waiting in time to bloom.
    When I did catch up their blooming season, I saw it was miniature but beautiful as its flower spikes look like a fat lizard's tail. I tried to smell its fragrances, it is very stinky and I was annoyed, yuck!!!

    Eventhough this is the nature of this plant, I loved collecting them because there are many different shapes of flowers and pseudobulbs in different subgenera such as Cirrhopetalum, Sestochilus, Lepidorhiza, Mastigion, Epicrianthes, Hyalosema, Ephippium, Leptopus, and so much more... I loved them...

    hi derek,
    mine had no fragrance at all and i sniffed on it many times.
    i also like the inflorescence, it sticks out from far away, nice pink/red.

    Good for you, Ron.

    The most stinky smell I have encountered was the Bulbophyllum levanae.
    A large fly went onto the column was stuck and killed in its sticky nectar.
    When its their flowering period, you would probably get annoyed and might thought a cat leave its feces somewhere making your day worsen if you don't find out something....
