I've never seen this bulbo and it's quite interesting...very colorful and
strange. Is this a stinky one?

I've always found the flowers endearing...they sort of remind me of cute little dutch clogs 😍
I would have said that they didn't have a smell... but pressed by your question, abax, I unfortunately discovered, that they have one... but you have to stick your nose right next to the flowers, before you discover the very faint odour of "what dogs leave in the streets" - thank god, you wouldn't notice unless you try really hard! I don't know for sure, but guess that the plant is fly polinated.
...very colorful and strange
If you find this one strange, you should take a closer look at the next Bulbo I'm about to post (B. fascinator) 😉

Yours is very beautiful and very solid red. Looks very healthy as well. I love mine, and it grows like a weed!!! Only flowers for me though if it gets at least a couple hrs of direct warm sun. I grow mine in straight sphagnum moss in a wooden basket.7E45CF4A-A509-41C4-B6E6-2D46113331CA.jpeg

Nice ones ... I can't seem to bloom my Bulbos under lights. Might have to stick them in the window with the threat of sunlight LOL.

Well bloomed and lovely!

What media are you growing it in?

Thanks to both of you for the smell test. I think smell interpretation
is quite subjective as illustrated by the response of two different
growers. Interesting, eh?
