    I really like this cool growing Bulbophyllum. I got it from Andy's orchids last year and it had one bloom. This year it's been blooming for a few weeks now. Some flowers have faded and fallen, some are open now, and a bunch of buds in various stages.

    The flowers are about 2 inches tall.

    I like that. Too bad it is a cool grower :(.
    At first glance I would not have thought it to be a Bulbophyllum. It looks like it should have a pleasant fragrance(?).

    Impressive roots, too.

    As Kelly said, to cool of a grower for me, but still a beautiful photo. Like the color of the flowers.

    This has grown well for me over the last year in my terrarium, so I would say it's also adaptable to at least intermediate conditions. I haven't bloomed it, but my division is still small. Growths in my care have been strong, though.

    Yours is nicely bloomed, Bill.
