    Looks really weird ..... I get this very strange feeling specially looking at the first photograph .... gives me the creeps like the flower is looking back at you with its red eyes and orange nose.

    Looks like this plant goes on my wishlist specially now that your saying that it is fragrant. I hate the stinking types.

    I got different strain all yellow with fine dots,I wonder why the pollen protruding like this is this by nature or by activity of insects?

    Aha , on re-reading I see that you had already answered my question ; I also see that it is fragrant. Not a common thing in bulbo's ; semelly yes, but fragrant, no. Mind you, something or other must like the smell even of B.medusae !
