    This is a pretty Bulbo. I accidently bought it at an auction today and will not be able to grow it on my cool- intermediate windowsill.

    Zainal, how should this be planted? it is sitting on top of fir bark in a 6" plastic pot. The roots seem very dry.

    The reddish ones are beautiful. Way to incite a little jealousy :-)

    Hi Katherine for your info most of the lobbii I found in the wild they grew at the altitude around 2700 to 3500 feet from sea level, I dont think you will have a problem just give ample of water and adequate of fertilizer he will be very happy, positive hope.

    Based on my observation he really love or enjoy the light as I can see the new pseudobulb extremely more plum with healthy elongated leaf, frequency of flowering in a year also increasing from 3 to 4 times in my atmosphere.
