    Sorry, I don't have this Bulbo either but I really like your bloom. I haven't squeezed even 1 bloom out of my only little Bulbo. yet.

    Yea, I like it heaps too, that's why I want more... and it is only a little stinky, ie dead fish smell... also the two sepals reminds me of 'happy pants' like MC Hammer use to wear....

    I am really enjoying it, pictorially speaking. Dead fish smell, however slight, would drive both me and the cat crazy!

    BTW - It reminds me of a stylistic art print of a woman in 20's dress - sort of an Erte' - ish type of thing.

    Cool Bulbo.

    It looks like a fat woman with very skinny legs

    I like it now I want one. Thanks for sharing. I would just assume to give it a little more light more regular feedings and let it get bigger to give you more blooms. A friend of mine grows a lobii that didn't bloom for many years and then give it enough sun and boom over a dozen blooms.
