Bulbophyllum lobbii 'Sonoma Gold' HCC/AOS

Bulbophyllum lobbii 'Sonoma Gold' HCC/AOS - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI keep saying that I want to reduce my collection but it never seems to happen. This Bulbophyllum is a recent addition. I went to the SCOS holiday party and came home with 3, this being one of them.

Bulbophyllum lobbii 'Winter' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThis is a very nice plant. It is awarded and the flowers are big and long lasting. I used to have another variety "Winter" and it was great.

This has six pseudobulbs and it has about filled the pot. There is not room for the next generation. I will divide it as soon as I see the new growth.

Bulbophyllum lobbii grows in Borneo, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines above 2000'. The species is warm to hot growing, fragrant and blooms in spring.
