    This hybrid of Bulbophyllum Doris Dukes x Bulbophyllum longissimum is one of the few plants that went through the environmental changes after the hurricane unscathed. The flowers often reach 12 inches in length or more.

    It is in a plastic dish, like the ones that are put under pots to protect the floors from water. It has been there for many years. This is a photo from 2012. Bulbophyllum (longissimum x Doris Dukes)
