    Hi!
    I will show you some pictures from our Botanical Garden.
    Our BoGa has a very impressive Bulbo collection. Most of the Bulbos are from Madagascar, because the BoGa is member of the ''Madagacar Orchid Save Project'' (I don't know, if the name is right in english). In a reason of this, many Bulbos came to the BoGa. But there are also some other very interessting Bulbos.
    And here are some photos: (sorry for the very bad quality from the photos. but I have to save the photos as ''JPEG''):rolleyes:

    At the end....All these Plant are from the Botanical Garden Salzburg, and in a reason of that, all Plants aren't for sale or for traiding or for such other things!!!
    So please, don't ask me, where you can get such Bulbos!
    Thanks!

    I hope you all like the photos.!;)

    From a distance it looks like Angraecum sororium.
    Isn't it interesting how so many great orchids and almost all the best genera, come from Madagascar? New world orchids blow in comparison. :p

    Salzburg is absolutely charming too. I did not go to the Botanical Garden when I was there, but I had a wonderful short visit... I will love to spend a Christmas in Salzburg someday.

    Thanks for the photos.

    Great post, Mäx! This looks like a magical place. I really like some of the little mini Bulbos; they are obviously thriving there at the BoGa. Thanks for all the pictures!
