    Default Cirrhopetalum flabellum-veneris

    I'm testing an app that I found to upload photos from my mobile...I've had this plant for five years or so. She's my favorite. Very good grower and blooms reliably.

    Thanks guys! The app is Imgur (not pro version-lots of ads with that one). It uploads from my mobile and gives me the embed codes directly from the app. The code copies with a click. Much easier than the method I was using previously.

    Really, I am surprised with the pics from my phone. Obviously, they aren't going to be jaw droppingly clear, but they are much better than I expected. Of course, I haven't looked at them on a different screen.
    This is about the only plant I have that I don't worry about...so she grows herself. It came tagged only as "bulbophyllum species". I wonder if it might be a hybrid. I've not found any problem yet. Cold, hot, whatever.

    I believe that the distinction is that in cirrho the two sepals are conjoined at the middle, and in bulbo are separate, and it takes a very close look to distinguish. But I prefer to think of all the daisy bulbos as cirrhos, and all the others as bulbos.
    When the madmen at Kew get out of their lumping phase base on a crazy use of dna clade diagrams, ignoring morphology and common sense, , and get into a splitting phase, Bulbo must be split up into goodness knows how many different how many genera, of which the daisy types must be one or perhaps two, based on the conjoined or not thing.
