    Where would this be located? It looks like a bulbophyllum to me. I am looking through the orchid photo encyclopedia now. Um I would love to get a 3 or 4 bulb division of that.

    I think I found it! Bulbo signatum Click the another clone link.

    I looked through all the bulbos in the encyclopedia and that was the one that was the closest. There was another, but it was not as close as this one.

    Thanks for the ID, Josh. They grow in shady part of the forest on the lower part of small woody plant, exclusively just above the forest floor, probably due to the moist and humid environment.

    Holy crap Josh. There approximately 1,000,000,000,000,000 species of orchids, of which approximately 1,000,000,000 are Bulbos or similar genera, and you looked through all those photos to identify the plant for him?!? I hope you went in reverse alphabetic order to get to signatum.

    There is only 502 Bulbos on the orchid encyclopedia page and I went though all of them. I knew it was a bulbo so I started there. I love High speed internet! I sure wish there was a way to get a cutting of one of those plants though. I am a bulboholic!

    Pssst.......... pluck off 4 bulbs of a leading run. Cutt off all the roots and scrub off any dirt and clean it up. Throw it in a baggie with some LFS and ship it this way. He he he I'll pay for shipping I will take care of the rest.

    I'm glad to see you looked at only 502 photos. If you had taken the time to look at a lot of photos, say 503 or more, we'd have to think you're beyond bulboholic and are just plain nuts.
