Default Bulbophyllum contortisepalum

No credit for me, I got it with a little spike.
Really cool flower, but this one is completely yellow.
The flower is about 5-6 cm long.
Complete flower

Lip/column

Contorted sepals

The flower is not very long lasting, it started closing yesterday and is now flimsy.

Hey I love this. My favorite orchids by far. Do you have a pic of the plant. I collect a bunch of different bulbos and like to see the plants. Thanks

Hi, this is the plant, it's very small.

I also like bulbos, they're my favorite epiphytic genus.
