I saw this in bloom at the local nursery. It is truly spectacular but i am not a fan of hybrid Bulbophyllum so I rein myself in on this one.
Bulbophyllum Micah Maetani
Bulbophyllum echinolabium x Bulbophyllum dearei
Very pretty. A very interesting cross.
That was quite nice. Looks like it had a lot of buds too.
Dang Vincent - that is a pretty bulbo. I love it. Such a bright, big orchid bloom
Interesting. A nursery produced some really interesting cross. i got echinolabium crossed to reticulatum that could flower soon. nature is strange enough, especially when it comes to bulbo. But it's really interesting to see how they cross.
thx for sharing.
I have a couple of echinolabium crosses too - Lady Jersey , and the same back crossed to echinolabium . Presumably the name refers to the strange lip on the species, which is not its best feature, but seems to breed out in the hybrids. My plants flowering for the the third year in succession now have 4 or more flowers in succession on a spike, and since they can be so big - 6 or 7 inches from tip to toe, they are worth growing.
Nice...I have the echinolabium hybrid Jersey and the damn thing just won't bloom for me.

Talking about hybrids, it seems like they are flowering really well right now. I have Tsiku Pingtung (pingtunense x elizabeth ann) and Thai Spider (gracilimum x medusae) are all flowering right now.
Echino crossing always very huge flower and so pretty.
