    Default Bulbo. sp. from Sumatra

    You really threw me here, Bruce - couldn't find the right forum for this, and nearly put it anywhere, leaving you to sort out. But hah! got there in the end.

    Bought it under the name, as per thread title; looks like several different Bulbos I have, but can't remember, and am too lazy to sort through andifind... But it is a bit different - brighter , more evil looking ? Not quite right, that word... Maybe someone will save me the trouble ? Flower a couple of inches, maybe 6 or 7 cm across. usual bobbing lip too.

    I don't know about evil, but it does look like no one should mess with it!

    O.K. maybe I am kinda nuts, (forgive my poor English) but I think its rather striking in a wild, prehistoric way. I love that distinct lip! AL
