Bulb. blumei

Bulbophyllum blumei

Many Bulbophyllums are fly pollinated and therefore give off an odor resembling rotten meat in order to attract a pollinator.  Luckily, this pretty flower does not have that unwelcome trait.  Grown on a fiber pot it's fast grown rhizomes quickly grew down the sides making for a nice display.  Flowered here December 2003.
