    Default Bulbophyllum comosum

    Called the "bottle brush orchid" for good reason. Cute little fuzzy unusual flowers with a slight pleasant, floral fragrance.

    Very nice. Like feathers somehow. I am amazed again and again how manifold the Bullbophyllums bloom

    Thank you all. Something interesting I just noticed. I had read the fragrance was like cinnamon, but didn't detect that the other day-just a floral scent. Now that all the flowers are open I am definitely getting a cinnamon fragrance.
