Default Bulbophyllum longissimum

It must be the blooming season for Bulbophyllums. Several in my collection are blooming. This is another plant that I obtained from the late Wilbur Chang. The flowers are 9 inches long. I do not detect any fragrance.

Wow. Beautiful colors. It is easy to see why it is called longissimum.
By the way, great picture. Love the look of pot as well.
