Hello,

Last year I got a small plant from a friend who is a big Bulbophyllum-fan. And now, only a year later, it is already fowering!
Being a cattleya-fan I am used to waiting 3-5 years before having a flowering plant...

The flowers are so different from the cattleya's. But they are equally beautiful and colorful!

This hybrid is Bulbophyllum Louis Sander.
The whole plant:

Greetings, Bindi

Congratulations Bindi. You appear to have a genuine Louis Sander. There are so many 'so-called' Louis Sanders about. The true cross is B.longissimum x B.ornatissimum. Your image shows the influence of B.ornatissimum. Check B.ornatissimum in the Bulbophyllum/Cirhopetalum archive in this forum.
