Good evening, I'm searching for a pure white flowered Bulbophyllum, form along the lines of a Bulbophyllum smitinandii, any such plant or was, am I imaging such a flower?

Well, B. Smitinandii has yellow flowers, so Im guessing that's the shape of the flower you're looking for?

Anyway, the only (cultivated) white bulbophyllums I know of are Bulbophyllum medusae, Bulbo. laxiflorum, and Bulbo. cocoinum. Bulbo. purpurascens has nearly white flowers.

Yes, in the form, flower shape of a B. smitinandii, large single flower per inflorescence, not the cirrhopetums with multiple flowers on the inflorescence.

Did a bit more searching:
B. Ambrosia?
B. Santosii?

Many thanks, the B. ambrosia in my collection is white with blue-purple stripes. Looking up the B. santosii I've found photos that range in color from pale, light, tan, cream,yellow, chartreuse and green, could be lighting conditions when the photo was taken. I have fund it web, I'll wait to call vendors tomorrow as it ia a holiday in the states.
