Nice one Lien, could you post pics of the plant please?

Yup, will take pics in 2 seconds, but there's not much to see!! it's just an ugly bulb and a new growth starting.

Here you go!



Does any one know anything else about this plant? I just know it's used for medicinal purposes but could not find much else on it. I couldn't even find a photo of it online!

Cool species!
I've got a small collection of Eulophias from when I was into collecting them. Most of the species are very difficult to find info about online, and even harder to find for sale. What were you wanting to know? (I don't know this species though, but I'll try to find you some answers)

Can't find any info on this species, other than that it is a medicinal plant, but i can't even find what it is used for!
