Bulbophyllum Doris Dukes (Bulb. fascinator x Bulb. rothschildianum)
I saw this Bulbophyllum hybrid in the Mayaguez Orchid Festival of September 2013. It is a hybrid of Bulb. fascinator and Bulb. rothschildianum. It produces pretty red flower that look intermediate between the parents. Both species are relatively easy to grow in Puerto Rico although they are not often seen outside the collections of specialists growers.
