    Default Phils. species Bulbo ID please

    Hello everyone,

    I have been helping this lady repot her orchid collection and she has a bulbo that according to her was imported from the Philippines but she does not know the name. I know we have a lot of Bulbo experts here so I told her that I will ask . I think the bloom is not fully open yet, and yes it has an unpleasant smell.

    Thank you in advance,

    The plant is Bulbophyllum levanae, in one of its many colour variations. This species originates in Leyte, where the blooms are pure yellow. I have alsoo seen this species in the wild in Albay province on Luzon and the island of Mindoro.

    one last question....whats with the red bulbs?
