    Default Bulbophyllum barbigerum

    I am absolutely in love with this Bulbo. So unusual yet really fun.

    The really cool thing about this one is that the lip is hinged so that it moves with any bit of breeze. I read that when the plant was discovered it was thought to be a hybrid between plant and animal because of the animation of the flowers. Here is an example.

    Yes I do Sheryl. Susan great looking bloom and they are certainly different then most because of that hinge and movement. I have to take a lot more macro photos when mine blooms as it moves so much and all I get are blurred photos.

    Thank you all. Jack-since mine are inside I don't generally have a lot of breeze going on.

    Wow wow this is so different from the rest of Bulbos the purplish hairs looks like sea anemone from the Great Barrier Reef.
