    Vincent, are you sure this is lobbii ? By looked at the leaf and pseudobulb this is not typical for ordinary lobbii it's seem that this species endemic or mimic one of the bubophyllum species in Pahang with similar shape and color or maybe I'm wrong.

    I can tell you how they grow in the wild the flowers exactly like yours very tough plants. Just have a look the photos below when I was in the jungle 3 years ago. Unfortunately there no flower at that time.

    Yes Vincent the flower similar like yours, apparently the photos up there was young seedling and the mature one very long like yours.
