    It looks like a grandiflora! I have one of these too and right now it is throwing spikes out all over the place. I have never managed to get it into bud as the spikes kept on blasting before they made it but I was advised to give it more light and since I have well - it should soon be blooming for me for the first time soon!! Yours is very nice, I haven't seen such a tall spike on one before.

    Oh yes, is there any scent?

    Hi,

    Your flower does look more like Bulbophyllum burfordiense. You reckon?

    Beautiful. It looks like Bulb. bufordiense but still confused, Bulb. buforidense is synonim of Bulb. grandiflorum or not
