    2Bulb stokerii
    3Bulb marcaranthum
    4B. hamatipes
    5.B.tortum
    6Bpraetervisum
    7B lyriforme
    8B.claptonense
    I cant recall some of them apparently very sweet.

    Thanks Ed maybe after this you can try B. claptonense one of the easiest species to flower.

    Thanks for the list! More to find for my collection... odoratissimum is another smelling divinely of sweet, fragrant citrus fruit, and I've heard others in Section Desmosanthes have similar qualities, but the only ones I've bloomed (vaginatum and medusae) were either odorless or less than pleasant. Sweet or stinky, I find Bulbophyllum fragrances some of the more fascinating in the orchid family.
