    Default Bulbophyllum maquilingense, philippines

    hi folks,

    this tiny bulbo is named after mt. makiling in laguna and had several attempts to bloom, most of it blasted coz of the heat, and its by far the hardest to photograph.
    the flower is way to heavy for its spindly spike and no breathing allowed while taking pix.
    it sometimes opens a bit more, but thats it and the show is over in a few hours...

    cheers,

    hi jojo,
    it has a slight husky scent, and you have to get really close to detect it.
    i dont mind the stinkers, lol.

    @randy,
    welcome!
