Its gorgeous, I love E.A. Buckleberry's.
Maybe try upping the fertilizer a bit, and light?? Unless you think you've already reached the fert and light limits for this plant. Otherwise just give it time to grow bigger.

I am sure all 3 will help.
I think it can use more light and may be more fertilizer and it does need time to grow( a small plant right now).

How much light can they tolerate? More like Cattleya ?

Bought at the Ft Lauderdale Orchid show 2 yrs ago and came with this name on tag which is lost already. I make a list of all plants in case I forget/lose tag and this is the only bulbo I ever had.

I did not know anything about orchids back then, just went to the show to learn about orchids. Came home with 7-8 orchids. I am totally hooked now. Thanks to all of you.

Not sure, somoeone else will have to answer. I grow all my bulbos in terrariums under flourescent lights, only 1 has bloomed on occasion. Usually when some extra sunlight reaches the plant. I would move them to brighter conditions, but they are all rooted into the background of my terrariums. Stuck for life.

I have a big very similar looking plant which I believe is Bulb. rothschildianum. It grows on a water storing clay pot with as much light as possible. The number of flowers depends on the summer. Last year the number was much higher than this year, but it never fails to flower.
