    Actually not most characteristic form of this sp, since has terate spike instead flat one, like the one in falcatum. On the top small flowers dorsal sepal just 5mm and flowers facing towards the blade of the rhachis, making neither easy to look at neither to take pictures, smelly too - this is kind of anti recommendation, no? lol, leaves 20-22cm.

    Fantastic. Well grown plant. I would love to get one to add to my African Bulbophyllum collection.

    Thanks for the warning!

    Visually, rather elegant looking.
