They were one of the main plants I focused on while working at Singapore botanic gardens.
I love them just hate the smell of them.
But they are very nice plants you've got there great job

They look great! I only have one Bulbo, am too afraid of them stinking as I've only got my windowsills to house them on! I especially like the little Frostii!

Those look really good flowers.
I wonder whether you have Bulb. rothschildianum and Bulb. wenlandianum because I have some spare plants which I would be pleased to share (no cost). If you want to PM me with your address I'll get them packed and up to you.

Thank you very much for the kind gesture, but unfortunately I already have those species. They are two of my favourites especially wenlandianum. Can't wait till mine flowers. I had a spike in rothschildanum. But i hadn't noticed it and it had got squished :( :(.
As for bulbophyllum's smell I actually think that they give a pleasant smell to a room, like you would expect a jungle to smell like. but can smell quite bad up close. Anyway the flowers certainly make up for the smell. (Obviously there will
Be exceptions)
Thanks for the kind gestures and comments

Have you got a medusae? I love the flowers on them! And the barbigerum? Love that one too!

I've got only a hybrid, lobbii x dearei as I have seen one in person and it didn't seem to smell at all!
