This is another one of my mini orchids that has a home in my bedroom window with my other Bulbophyllums. It's in a 4 inch clear plastic pot with a medium-size bark mix. Like most of the Bulbos it has a funky smell when it blooms, sort of like rotten flesh. Please click the pictures to view in the large format.
