    Default Bulbo orthosepalum

    Someone on another forum suggested I do a seperate post on this Bulbo.
    I am adding a full plant shot and internal structure. I wanted to fertilize it and the only way to do it was to remove the dorsal. It has a very interesting structure.

    That's a very interesting bloom.

    Quite thick flower.

    Does it have fragrance?

    That's cool, Ron! Nifty flower!

    How big is tht plant? Looks like a 4" basket?

    Are you crossing it with a similar bulbo?

    6" basket and I selfed it. It is a fairly rare Bulbo, at least not common in collections. I wanted to make more available. The leaves are about 2 feet. This is the Macrobulbon section along with Bulbo. phalaenopsis
