Not the most beautiful of orchids but one of the most interesting I think. This plant aborted it's buds over the past two years and nearly finished up in the Great Orchid Nursery in the sky! But I'm glad I gave it one last chance.

I love this orchid. I call it the cheer-leader orchid due to the pom-poms. Never had the guts (or space) to try it though. Would you happen to have a picture of its buds? I would love to see what they look like!

Not a bulbo fan, but a nice looking 'chid and a lovely picture!

Hello Steph, no pictures of the buds, I was holding my breath that they would not turn yellow and drop off! however I can tell you they were very ordinary,just like a Cattleya bud or something similar. When the bud starts to open it looks as if it's full of cotton threads. Have fun, try one.

Well I'm definitely encouraged to try one now!

On the contrary, I think it is one of the most beautiful.

Although it's weird and strange, it is actually one of the easier Bulbos to grow (and flower) IMHO.
