    This unique Bulbophyllum is found in Laos and Thailand as a cool growing, medium sized plant with leaves about 6-7 inches long with diamond shaped pseduobulbs. The blooms are hidden under a floral bract and only last a few days. Smells faintly of skunk and rubber.

    Definitely one of my favorites.

    The blooms just opened up yesterday, so it will be nice to see how long they actually last. I have seen online that it says 3 days.
