    As you probably know, I grow a lot of bulbophyllums. I walked into my GH this morning, and the smell of vomit was overwhelming. I looked around, and I can't find the source. Can someone here please help me think of which one might be flowering? I couldn't find one, but I suspect it's there somewhere. TIA.

    Where you doing some heavy drinking in the greenhouse the night before? I think the smell of vomit can be different depending on what the person ate before vomiting, what liquor they got drunk on, and if really was a person who vomited (it could have some other animal). Can you give us a better idea of how the vomit smelled?

    It's not vomit, Clark. It just smells like it.

    We both know that ain't gonna happen, Forrest. Why don't you just start listing off which bulbos smell like semi-used food instead...?

    Too funny! Go hunting, maybe turn the fans on before you go in?

    What is it, 10 % of the Bulbophyllums small bad, and a lot smell like fish, vomit or faeces. So it could be a lot of species. But I agree with forrest, give us a list to choose from... ;-) If you show me yours...

    What I would give to see yours, Linda. Then again, it would just be a tale of "you can look but you can't touch".

    No. I confused this thread with the other one. Sorry.

    Frit isn't blooming. The capsule on it is forming quite nicely, though.
