    When I found this plant on Ecuagenera's list this year, I decided to try it even though I knew it probably wanted cooler conditions than I could provide. It initially dropped a few leaves but seems to have stabilized a bit and is finally maturing a bloom after blasting a number of spikes earlier in the year.

    IOSPE lists the common name for this species as the "Outstanding Bulbophyllum", and I can't say that I disagree :D

    Ditto. That is outstanding. Beautifully grown plant, too.

    Double blooming this go 'round. It definitely enjoys my fall/winter conditions better than my summers:
