I had a spike on my Elizabeth Jean, and suddenly it got "rotten/soft" near bud and died. Any ideas on what happened or what I did or did not do? I mist my bulbophyllums with water to keep up humidity, I tried very hard not to mist spike.
It is in a Vanda basket.

Do you have good air-circulation in the growing area? Good air-circulation (avoiding still-air) is highly beneficial. Still-air can often lead to issues (unwanted fungal growth, rotting etc).

Maybe it's ok to skip the misting ..... or manual misting. It's possible that the extra treatments - such as manual misting - is generating conditions for the rotting activity. I think that if your growing media is a suitable one, and if air-circulation in the growing area is good - good natural air movement nearly all of the time, and if the watering schedule is a suitable one, then that should be quite nice for the plant already.

It is a dumb question, but we forgive it as ordered.

You are right. There are certainly similarities. Notice the lower case 'r' in Bulbophyllum rothschildianum. That's part of a naming format, where the lower-case is linked to a 'species'.

They took that species, and crossed it with another species called Bulbophyllum longissimum. That cross resulted in lots of children plants, and one of those children turned out to be Bulb. Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry'. The name Elizabeth Ann is the name of the 'cross'. It is a hybrid. Elizabeth Ann is the grex name...... the name or label for this particular hybrid (cross).

A way to check on a hybrid (cross) is to head on over to the Royal Horticultural Society's "international orchid register" site at The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening - then go to the very bottom of their page, and enter the genus .... which is Bulbophyllum, and then enter the grex ... which is Elizabeth Ann, then click on 'search'. And if the search finds a result, then put the mouse cursor over that result, and then click on it. Some information will appear, such as parental names.

Also, bluenanta (whatever that means) generally has information about a lot of orchids, so use google and do a search like "bulbophyllum elizabeth ann bluenanta". Do searches like this for getting orchid information.

Terribly sorry, Southpark.

I thought it might be interesting for the sake of discussion to ask the question in the thread rather than research it by myself. I will certainly refrain from asking any questions here unless I have made sure it is not redundant.

No problem DC!

There's no problem with asking any orchid question though on the forums, even if you deem it to be dumb and even if somebody agrees with you about it.

I'm just showing for example - in a few seconds after googling something like "bulbophyllum elizabeth ann and rothschildianum relation" - it will lead to that answer.

Then after I find out, I would then say that it's awesome that my rothschildianum is closely related to Elizabeth Ann. Very closely related.

I nearly purchased an Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' earlier this year! I was thinking about it, and had to hold off at the end - due to possible space/room considerations. They had a couple for sale on ebay Australia - most likely got sold. Very nice and interesting flowers indeed.
