    Default Bulbophyllum medusae x tridentatum

    This hybrid has a nice fragance, smells like a red apple. Its very free flowering, every bulb. will produce at least 2 spikes. That's why you can see the flowers whole year round.

    Very nice orchid blooms. I guess the bulbo tridentatum must influence the color and the shape quite a bit in this orchid cross. I have Bulbophyllum medusae (white) and the bulbo tridentatum is a dark red with similar shapped blooms to this hybrid, only less frilly. Very interesting hybrid here, Neoh.

    cheers,

    I have no words to describe this, which doesn't happen often. Beautiful!

    Very interesting cross. Love the colour and its tree flowering characteristic.

    Nice color! Glad it doesn't take after medusa in the fragrance department.
