    Bulbo burfordiense (grandiflorum)
    This gall was growing out in the GH and is now in my living room so I can enjoy the flower, but here are some pictures of the first flower of this plant under my care. This is the second spike, but the first blasted and never flowered.

    Very cool. Hopefully it isn't a "fragrant" Bulbo or, if it is, it just smells like some socks that need washing instead of something worse.

    Nope Bruce it is not fragrent. Now the bulbo Phal I just recieved on the other hand I hear will drive me out of the GH when its in bloom. LMAO I have one other bulbo I can't remember the name right now. It is fragrent, but you have to put your nose to it to smell it. It smells like fish slime.

    Awesome - I've never seen this one!

    So many Bulbophyllum flowers are hum drum look-alikes but THIS is really something! Thanks for sharing!

    Very nice.

    Is that a Coryanthes or Stanhopea back there on the right? I'd love to have one of those but I don't have a large enough place to hang it and it's pendant blooms.

    Yes Swords those are stanopeas in the back ground. They are still seedlings and haven't bloomed yet. Stans don;t really take up that much room unless you let the plants get big. The blooms do not really go too far from the bottom of the baskets. Definatly nothing like a gongora. They get long on some species, but most stans stay right uner the pot. I want to get some Coryanthes. I haven't purchased any of those yet. Have fun!!
