    Default Bulbophyllum hirundinis

    Do you ever see this before? A beautiful Bulbo, native of Taiwan!
    For this reason, I love it more. Still not strong enough, so only produce four flowers on one spike. I hope there will be nine flowers on one spike next year!

    Wow Chian! I never really bothered to look at the few bulbos that were at the shows around here. But the ones you have posted - Wow!

    so is this a specific variety of hirundinis? The other pictures I can find of this flower does not have the same coloration as the one you have here. The one you have here is very awesome, Im try to track down how to get one.


    thanks.

    thanks.
    Where do you find the pictures? Can you show me the link?
    Maybe some people confuse this one with Bulbophyllum flaviflorum or
    Bulbophyllum setaceum , which also can be find in Taiwan, they are similar in appearance.
