    Never expected to bloom like this altogether about 19 flowers in one clump, the other clumps just about 5 to 8 only, just to share with you.

    Thanks Vincent and Gavin, almost everyday iI come very close to sniff the nice perfume and enjoy the scene, I always noticed lobbii var Cameroon Highland( West Malaysia) very difficult to bloom like this and difficult to grow, I have almost 100 pseudobuls of lobbii encircling the branches for more than 5 years never bloom at all sometimes feel weird ah.. maybe not too cold to induce flowers.

    The most beautiful lobbii I have ever seen. Just to have a plant with a couple blossoms is worth bragging over - this one is worth swooning over. Very well done indeed Zainal !
