    Default Bulbophyllum Louis Sander

    I posted a picture of this about 3 months ago with its 1st flower. These opened this week. I would like some help from some of you that "know" Bulbophyllum better than myself, which means most of you!!!!! My query is that I don't think this is Louis Sander. All the pictures I've seen of flowers with this label have a yellow lip and petals more like Cirr Elizabeth Ann B. as an example of what I seen (Bulbophyllum Louis Sander | Orchids Online). The pseudo bulbs are about 3 cm and somewhat barrel shaped and support a single leave of about 12 ~ 15 cm, narrowing at the tip. The petals are quite long and thin at the ends to thread. So what do you think... stick with the name that came with the plant or is this something else??????

    I'm amazed at all the confusion with Bulbophyllum and Cirrhopetalum. I did some searching around and here is just one example: Go to this page Miscellaneous Plant Listing: A-L and note that there is not only a miss spelling on the image it's self, but also no yellow/gold on this flower at all. Hmm.

    I couldn't agree with you more on this, Mitch. The picture in your link looks more like Cirr Elizabeth Ann. My flower has very long petals, much longer than those in your link or the link I provided..... I've had some issues with the vendor from whom I purchased this plant.... I think he is just getting old and having some issues taking care of his greenhouse and stock.
