    Default Bulb corolliferum (?)

    I admire other people's bulbos but not really into growing them - only 8 plants actually. This one tagged Bulb corolliferum flowers several times a year. Not sure if the name is correct.

    The whole umbel is about 25 mm( 1 in) across and each individual flower is 7mm x 2mm.

    Certainly looks like it to me Yew, maybe just a bit more squished up-like a persian cats' nose, y'know?

    Very pretty though, congrats!

    Yes, I believe the tag on this bulbo orchid is correct, Yew Sung. Looks like Bulb corolliferum.

    Cheers,
