    Default Bulbophyllum grandiflorum

    A unique but very free flowering bulbo. Luckily no bad scent detected . The bloom size is around 4 inches. Quite big for a bulbo.

    I love love love this bulbo but then again I do have one of my own. I have had it for only a month so no flowers yet. Apparently I could have one on the way as when I repotted it I saw a tubular growth emerging from the rhizome which was white in appearance. I was reliably told by someone that that is a flower beginning to grow. Obviously now it is covered up with sphag again but I would hope that I will soon start to see it growing out of the medium and turning into a beautiful flower like yours.

    Nice bulbo! I have one as well but mine seems a bit small. I wonder if it was mislabeled.
