    One of the Bulbos flowering for me at the moment. I have a few Bulbophyllums flowering but the flowers do not last long as we have been getting temps in mid 30's to 40c

    I am not sure if you are right I have seen photos of Bulbo like mine with makoyana and then I have seen photos that were completely different than mine of this species. I bought my plant from a very old established Orchid nursery but in saying this they make mistakes also.
    If anyone can prove that my Bulbo is a Hybrid or species I would love hear from them so that I can put a correct name on my plant.
