    Thanks Sheryl! They can sometimes be frustrating trying to figure out what you are doing wrong when sometimes it is just the orchid that needs to grow to a certain size before blooming. Some I have been known to decide that if they have not bloomed by the next re-potting season, which means for me late Florida winter or early spring, they are history and yet when that come times I still keep them and finally they decide it is time to bloom and it always turns out to be worth the wait.

    Are you thinking of Bulbophyllum carunculatum very similar to this one. Thanks Zain!

    That is one reason why I don't mind that my sinus problems prevent me from smelling much of anything.
