    Default Bulbophyllum crassipes

    I have had this orchid since 2015 and this is the best blooming yet. There are a total of 14 bud/blooms and I see another 6 buds poking out of other pb's. It is currently on a wood mounting plague but will have to be mounted on something else in the spring as the plaque is rotting out in the back, that might be a job and a half to do!

    This reminds me of some batik motifs. Love the color too. Thanks for sharing.
