    Default Bulbophyllum carunculatum - first pics, more to follow

    A first flowering for me, and a pleasant surprise - I think I had this one mixed up with echinolabium. No unpleasant smell, and a handsome flower here..
    As you may see, four spikes, and it looks as though each will bear more than one flower, maybe three. I don't know if its a sequential flower job, or an all at once one. If the latter then the pic with 12 flowers should be good - but that's what we used to call counting your chickens before they've hatched.
    Whatever, I'll post another pic when i think the flower count, at any one time is coming up to max

    It's a sequential bloomer, only one at a time-but a long blooming period.
