    Mastiphyllum Louis Sander is a cross between Bulbophyllum longissimum x Mastigion ornatissimum. But when the hybrid was created in 1936 it was actually classified as a primary hybrid of Cirrhopetalum genus, and it is the first registered hybrid of the Bulbophyllum alliance. The flowers measure about 8 inches wide by 25 cm long sepals. It smells kind three days old sweaty gym socks... but thankfully not very strong. I grow it in the bark, intermediate, medium light.

    Very nice, thank you for the informations ,really interesting. I have two clones of Bulbophyllum longilissimum, one makes flowers very clear.
    I like your way to make photos, I will buy a reflex as soon as possible for making
    good photos, there are a lot of good photographers in this forum.

    No recent photo, but this is from last year when it bloomed on two spikes. There is a couple of new bulbs now, but otherwise about the same.
