Here are my current bloomers:
Bulbo blumei 'Robin's Scarlet Dancer' AM/AOS
this one I got in trade from Rick a few years ago. He had it awarded. I love it!!


Bulbo orthosepalen
This is a very cool one from the Macrobulbon section. The leaves are 1.5-2 feet long.


Bulbo smitinandii
This one came from Andy's a few year back The flower is 1.5"


Bulbo lobbii 'Kathy's Gold' AM/AOS
although it has an AM, I still like my other lobii better. The other one has a larger flower and more blooms than this clone.


here is my other lobbii

Blake the smitinandii is easy to find but the orthosepalum is rare and if you can find it, it will be pricey. I am going to try to fertilize it and send the seed off to Troy Meyers.

I love 'Robin's Scarlet Dancer'. For that one, I might even be willing to put up with the stink. I avoid bulbos because of the smell.

Rick is correct, there are many that don't have any fragrance and I have one that smell like coconut and others with pleasant fragrances.
