    The flowers are tiny and a challenge to photograph. I had to hold my breath to get this photo.
    The lip is in the closed configuration, that is why it is not apparent in the photo.

    The Bulbs are around thee inches high not counting the leaves. Growth is slow when compared to other Bulbophyllum. It is not a tidy grower, I had to use metal wires to guide the new growths so they would stay inside the basket. The inflorescence is deep red and so far about a foot and a half long.

    I am trying to take even better photos but it is a challenge because the slightest air movement can move the flattened inflorescence.
