Very little flowers with showy elongated palae on sepals.
Could be the rarer Bulb.lemniscatum
as far I know it is tripaleum, not lemniscatum... they are some differences and slightly different flowers order...
It's B. tripaleum right. You can find it in Bulbophyllum of Thailand. Unfortuntely my thai is lousy (read non-existant) so I can't read about it...
I would love to have a division tho. Anything on my list that you would like to have? B. ankylochele perhaps?
You're offering up bulbo ankylochele? Oh jeez...
Why not? I really want to have the tripaleum, I have been staring at that photo in the book since I got the book, and thought that I would never have it.
Ankylochele has been on my wish list since the first time you posted images of it. Tripaleum, lemniscatum, and lemniscatoides are all relatively common in the US. Ankylochele... not at all.
well I have two plants that is in spike now, If I'm lucky I may get a pod this year.
Now you're just being mean..
thx, I will send you msg Linda, actual it is little not sure with this one, not exactly matching Seidenfaden drawing and ratio on flower, it may be new variety/sp, still most similar to tripaleum. Not as dense head of flowers not as cylindric like in lemniscatum or lemniscatoides, more think more look for new sp or natural cross between those first two??
some closer pictures, lateral sepal has max 2mm
I possible boring you but this Bulbo was looked by specialist and it is not lemniscatum nor tripaleum ... well it has some major differences from them like: "lip has no distinct keels, and the appendages have only four flanges, not six"...
Some more pictures and last spike this year and one finally caught with open flower, they opens only just before finishing of blooming, which is quite long special for Bulbophyllum (well if You count all weeks with closed flower but already long palea) ;-)
