    Some bulbos are very potent early afternoon time when the breeze is right, but very ephermeral!!!!!!, luckily an advantage exploited as night fall approaches and windows/ vents closed up as temp apllicable. An article in waiting me thinks - ' how to collect bulbos and get away with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! atleast until that night smelling one? arrives which competes with odour strength of the rafflesia.

    Bravo Nat!!!!!!!!!
    Hi Matt,

    I like your post very much and I see we have something common. I wish I could speak English as well as my mother language (Russian), so I could express better what I have in mind.
    I especially like your passage about dishes vs interesting movies.... I often feel same way! Anyway, let us return to our sheep, "revenons a nos moutons" (French forum members, please forgive me!!) The odor question. Actually, the referring to dead raccoons was a very mild in fact. I'd like to quote from the book "Bulbophyllums; the Incomplete Guide, From A to WHY?" by Bill Thoms, our Club member and a Bulbophyllum Guru. This is how he describes the scent of B. echinolabium: an "overpowering stench of rotted fish stuffed in a dead rat and left in the sun for a week". (P. 168) Now you can see, my comparison was VERY delicate in fact!

    Shane, I don't want to disappoint you, but from the shape of the bud, I'd say you have a Bulbo. carunculatum. Personally, I don't think that's a bad thing, just not what you were expecting.

    I have to agree with Michael. I didn't think that it looked like an echinolabium bloom either. But you will know soon enough.

    Nat, if you ever do divide your plant, I would love a division. Mine is quite yellow compared to yours and it would be neat to have one with a different look. I would share a division of mine as well once it gets a bit bigger.

    michael and jonada, amazing yall are so quick to id bud shape from such a bad picture! good on yall! if it is in fact carunculatum, please dont pitty me, it just gives me all the excuse i need to email the other dealer who said he would brin me a division next week if i really wanted it ;-) the dealer who brought tis one for me is reallg good, and i love him but his attitude is a bit quirky... i was picking up some bare pbulbs of one that he had a flowering example of and the flower was fading so it looked a bit like the sumatra to me, when i asked him he said, "no, philippines for sure but you say sumatra, it's sumatra, the customer is always right" im fairly sure it was the fecetum he was talking about but his attitude is kinda of, sure, i know what youre talking about and this is it... now buy it and shove off!!! he knew i was looking for echinolobatum and said it was, but either way, its a massive plant and i will enjoy it all the same... and enjoy next weekend getting the right one if need be!!! thanks for the input yall!

    Funny... I even did not notice the spike yesterday
    I agree, the spike looks more like B. carunculatum or B. amplebracteatum. Anyway, they are nice Bulbos, too.

    OK, I'll keep you in mind!

    If not in bloom, the other differentiation (at least from all the plants I have seen) is the foliage color. Carunculatum has bright green foliage, echinolabium is a more gray-green.
