    Nice one Zach. Am I seeing right that yours doesn't have any yellow on it?

    Thanks. It's has a smell but you have to stick your nose into it to appreciate it, that is if you enjoy wet musty sock smell.

    Aaron your eyes do not deceive you there is no yellow on this one. There is a slight ting of green on the back of the sepals I'll take a pic in the morning to show you. I believe the yellow looking elsoglossum's are actually a different species. I can't think of it of the top of my head I'll look at the tags on those plants tomorrow as well.

    Cool Zach. I think this is my favorite section of Bulbos. My ellasso. is similar to yours, only thing is that it turns slightly yellow as you approach the tips of the sepals. Will post a pic when it blooms again.

    I love this section as well there are some great species. The other sp. I was thinking of is ocellatum. It's all yellow though
