    She does it again and again - Trichopilia tortilis

    GuRu, that is indeed a beautiful specimen! I am just starting to grow these wonderful orchids and would love some tips from you. Can you tell me what medium you are using? I have to grow indoors under LED lights (from botanicalledsdotcom, used to be theorchidhobbyist). Thanks so much, I know...

    Bulbophyllum Tingabarinum

    Wow. I am so glad to hear they smell of cilantro! Someone had a list of fragrant ones, and it as we know, a lot of Bulbs don't smell very nice. A list I ran across showing fragrances said this one smells like (and excuse me, I'm just repeating what I read) stink beetles. Much rather smell...
