This is a cool Bulbo I got from Jay out in Houston.

It was labeled as Bulbo stella, but you'd be hard pressed to find it under that name any more.




Blooms sequentially on a 1 to 2 ft long spike. No smell I can detect.

Bulbos always surprise me because they can be so beautiful and so
spooky sometimes. This one falls into the beautiful category and no
stink...perfect.

Also some of the coolest ones are actually really tiny and you need a magnifying lens to see them. This one is actually a 2-3 inches across.

Beautiful! I was trying to google this species, and I found that it is suppossed to have 1 "L" instead of 2 "L"'s, so it should be Bulbophyllum macrochilum.
