    Default Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis

    I got this in March and it gave me a surprise when it started to spike, at first it was like a green pea that grew into the first picture and that turned into a treat! I only wish I had started taking pictures of the spike in the beginning on a regular bases showing the growth to what you see here, next time. So far no odor unless it happens early in the morning which I am not, a morning person.

    Interesting flower. Looks like it would have more of an odor than a fragrance.

    It's suppose to stink from what I have heard and read, if it does not happen that would be fine by me, just what I need the neighbors complaining about the smell!
