    Very nice!! I wonder, Jeff, if fertilizer/ minerals have something to do with how 'red' the blooms can be? Maybe on the next blooming it will be more like what you were hoping for it to be. I think it is just great!

    Cheers,
    BD

    The first pictures are of Bulbophyllum jacobsonii, a species from Sumatra. The flowers of this species reach 1bout 10 to 12 cm long.

    The second species is what I would consider to be Bulbophyllum plumatum, from the Philippines. The flowers of this species can be over 20 cm long.

    All the best,

    That is really nice. I like the color. I just got a small one that was in bloom at the time. I hope I can grow it as well as you have grown yours.

    It is actually labeled plumatum/jacobsonii. Thanks for the info.

    OH I'd still like to aquire a division of yours. Mine was said to be jacobsonii so I still need a plumatum. Yours has that great color and length too.
