It is coming.
I've long waited for this and am devastated I can no longer smell.
Ooohhh, that's exciting. How old does the plant have to be before it starts to bloom?
I'm not sure the minimum age for fowering. I bought mine as a backbulb division that had started growing again. I've had it, 4 years or so.
The bulbs now are 5-7 cm in diameter. I will update this thread with developments every day or two.
Wow, thats one day's development! Don't you wish the plant itself would grow like that keep them coming!
Ha, that would be nice. This plant is like an old man on a rocking chair sleeping on his porch. Once in a while there is some incoherent mumbling and movement in the chair, but largely it is comatose.
It's amazing to see the floret - question? Is it the New Guniea type that can grow to incredible lengths & proportions? I must admit that nature can surprise at ever turn.
Ohh! Love it!
Can you post a plant picture for reference?
Very nice. Great patience and growing.
Yes...whole plant picture please.
It should be open all the way soon and will take a whole picture then.
Excellent!!! That's a nice clone to boot!
Now that I've finally bloomed it I can look forward to it becoming enormous, obtuse, and wholly masculine.
That's wonderful. Thanks for the series.
i do love this section of bulbophyllum There is a far i visit every month that belongs to a dear friend of mine and i am always surprised what can be found there 2 months ago my eyes popped out of my head when i saw this

Wow, that is massive.
Those are so beautiful. If I was a sloth I'd hope these to grow on me.
