    For your information this species is slow growing once the roots already established then it will be very very fast. Your plant definitely very healthy the vigorous new shoot will tell us that they already adapted very well to the surrounding.
    Thank you Zain!! I just keep it moist all the time, that's it.
    Thank you for your nice words and informative comments!
    I used to have this species a few years ago but it died. I figured out it needed more humid conditions than I had provided. I also think my plant is quite happy now and hope this time I will be luckier. (smile)
    Here is my first Bulbo.tortum:
    August, 2014

    It looks unusual to me, too.
    I have a picture from May, 13th. Day or two before opening the bud looked like a beak.

    Thank for sharing very odd presentation of this wonderful species Natali so interesting usually if it's looked like a beak to me inside got small insects that begin to destroy this plant but not this one.

    The lower part of the "beak" is a leaf!

    Now your plant really very happy and adapted very well with the new atmosphere as I can see the 2 new shoots expanding in a nice manner congrats, base on my experience if everything going very smooth in response to short period of hot season it will produce more buds from the old pseudobulb.

    Natali I wish you will look for other. Bulbo species like stokerii similar like tortum, praetervisum and lasiochilum.

    Good advice, thanks!
    I am in love with Bulbos. I have B. lasiochilum. Easy grower & bloomer. I will have to wait till the next international orchid show to order more Bulbos from Malaysian vendors
