We made this hybrid to see what would happen if we crossed one of the largest flowered Bulbophyllums (echinolabium) with the very rare and giant-leafed but small-flowered beccarii. The result is quite nice with 3-inch flowers that come out sequentially on stems that can have as many as 30 or 40 flowers over a long period of time. Bulbophyllum beccarii has up to 150 flowers per spike but the flowers are quite small. Yes, this plant does have a fragrance or perhaps odor would be the best description, like carrion. The plant has wonderful large wide leaves. We have kept the nicest plants from the cross and grew them quite large. We now have 4 different clones to offer. These are all divisions of our best. Each plant does have a clonal name. One can expect the occasional brown spot on some of the older leaves as this is just their growth habit.

IN SPIKE: 
An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

NOT IN-SPIKE:
An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
