    I purchased this a Bulbo reevei, but it seems different from what I find on line or in my library (didn't actually find anything in the first books I looked at). It is a charming thing and I am happy to have it.

    Holy crap. Definitely not reevei. The best I can find in Orchid Monographs VII is Bulbo aechmophorum.

    Marni, I hope we get to see more photos when all those lovely
    buds open. It should be quite a spectacle.

    Actually there is only 1 bud, all the other little nubs you see are from that awful moss that plagues my greenhouses.

    I have this one. I was going to sell it, but Jon convinced me to give it to him.

    JJ Vermeulen gave me the name. It is B. rhodoleucum.

    Thanks to Jon for reference material and to Piotr for sending it to Vermeulen and getting me in contact with him.

    Huh. I always thought it had a lot more white in it.

    Nice Marni. This is one of my favorite bulbos that has been posted here. :)

    As strange as this may seem, I have to disagree with Jaap. This flower is nothing like the rhodoleucum he describes in his literature. He even provides a color plate that is a different flower...

    I looked in the key for Peltopus section that you sent, but don't see B. rhodoleucum there. Does he have a drawing of this species?

    It certainly doesn't look like the B. rhodoleucum on Bandisch's site. Unfortunately, I no longer have the URL for that page.

    Yes. There's a line drawing. Send me an email, and I'll send you the drawing when I get home.
