    hmmm I kind of thought so, Thanks daddy-o haha :P ..... I was also curious cause I try to buy species that are grown from seed and havnt been bloomed or divided yet. My echinolabium actually has a brown nub at the base of the newest matured pseudobulb. I discovered this when i repotted it. Which either means it has been divided or has been bloomed before. I talked with the vender and they said it is how the plant was presented to me (seed grown, undivided and unbloomed) ....Im so not that stupid and very much disappointed, kind of makes me not want to buy from them again...meh w.e i guess, at least its starting a new growth ..thanks again

    I can't think of any bulbo's which flower from the top of the bulb, or out of the centre of the new growth ; it is always a special growth from the side of the made up bulb.

    Geoff, glad you don't mind the smell of yours. I was brave and smelled mine when in bloom. I once read it described as rotting meat sprinkled with pepper. I thought that was a pretty accurate description. Luckily the scent didn't travel far from the bloom. I still love the bloom. Mine needs new media. What would you recommend?
