    I only get no blast credit. Although I've had it for over two months, I didn't spike it. Sepals are a little over an inch a piece. This one falls into "Jon's Top Five Favorite Bulbos That He Owns" category.

    Thanks friends!

    Didn't make one, Karen. It looks just like any other bulbo, though.

    Is it, in your opinion, ahead of Halpalochilus nitidus, on the "best list"?
    And what, might I do to go to the very top of the "wish list"
    Oh, master?
    ( I can't find the "suck up" emotie.....)
    :D

    It's really neat!

    I have the nitidus, Karen and in my opinion, this one is "prettier". The stripes had me at hello.
    But the nitidus is quite nice as well. Maybe I should grow both and then give my opinion.
    Save me one of those divisions, Jon. Thank you.

    Thanks everyone.

    I bought this species from Carolina Orchids a few years ago, and I got a bulbo laxiflorum instead. Needless to say, that was my only order from CO. I think it was for 20 plants, of which fewer than 7 are true to their tag. I acquired this one from a different source.

    Waiting with baited breath.
    ( I know it means we are waiting impatiently, but WTF is "baited breath"????)
    Oh, and WTF did Jon find this??
    Enquiring minds, want to KNOW!
    :D
