    Default Bulbo a Doris Duke Cross

    So far this is my neatest Bulbo. It called "Melting Point", The tail is real curly of about three inches. I'll keep posting as the flowers open looks like maybe 8 possible blooms. Hope my grasshopper doesn't think its a candy cane with those stripes. No smell either.

    This is an unusual iteration of this hybrid (Doris Dukes x longissimum). Normally you would expect 2-4 flowers per inflorescence, 20-30 cm long, and straight. Do the other flowers look like they will be curled?

    not as much as these first blooms, they look like they may be straight.

    How odd. Those curly blooms are quite unique!

    The other blooms look like they are gong to be straighter, is it possible this one didn't open properly.

    Cool bulbo orchid blooms. I am surprised that they are so curly like that. Unique anyway!

    cheers,
