    It looks more like a wonderful new fungus fruiting body (mushroom/toadstool) than an orchid flower. But amazing, and well done Jack. You should write a book about your tremendous bulbo’s - the only one I know on the subject is woefully poor compared to yours. An e-book ? Put me down for the first copy !

    Thanks Geoff! Not a very good writer so not sure how good it would be and there are so many things I still don't know about bulbos, if I do figure that out you will be the first to get a copy!

    Jack, that is really unusual. You have an amazing collection of bulbo orchids and your photography is top notch! Sign me up for a copy of that book when you decide to do it!

    cheers,
