We love this Bulbo - the close up of the face looks like an ancient Indian chief's face - all nose,teeth, hairy upper-lip and head feathers
Bulbophyllum - With nearly 3000 species this is one of the largest genera in the orchid family with a widespread distribution. They grow well in high humidity, moderate warmth and some shade - good light is needed for flowering.
