After almost 10 years, I have my first spikes! Here's one:



The other bloom spike is behind the leaves.
It seems to like my new conditions. Since last December, it's been on my plant shelf. I am so excited!

My Bulbophyllum putidum did not bloom 8 years. And became bloom after cool autumn.

Congratulations on the spike - ten years is a long time to wait - well done.

10 years?! I'm getting impatient with my bulbos and I've only had them a year and a half...

Very nice plant though, and congrats on the bloom!

Pretty!
So, maybe it just takes another eight years until I see some blooms on my Bulbos? Ugh!

I suspect the 10 years was because it wasn't in the right conditions, particularly not getting enough light. It has received a lot more light in the last year because I got a light shelf in November 2017. It's on the shelf now where mini-catts are blooming.
