A warm grower found in southern Xizang and northwestern Yunnan provinces of China, Assam, India, eastern Himalayas, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and Vietnam. Does not appear to have an odor.

Some time ago I switched all of my Bulbos from sphagnum moss to orchiata bark/lava rock. I was simply tired of changing out deteriorated SM. The reason for having moss is to give the moisture loving plants enough water. I do that now by watering daily. So far so good, I'm getting good root formation, some have new growth and there have been blooms. In addition to that I have given myself the luxury of grossly over potting the plants as the mix should last at least 5 years.

It's obvious, that your potting medium works well.
Interesting flowers, first glance made me think of peppers
