Bulbophyllum A-Doribil Upwind

This hybrid has achieved something that I thought was not a posibility, it almost made me puke.  Make no mistake, I am not easily grossed out, for a time I worked in a lab and did necropsies of such delightful things as rats, toads, sharks and even more loathsome things.  This hybrid between Bulbophyllum basisetum x Bulbophyllum echinolabium, really packs an odoriferous punch.  Its foul odor is among the most appalling I have had the misfortune to experience.

i completely agree...i have one that has been blooming off of 3 inflorescences for a couple months now...
the stench is oppressive and i've noticed that the stench is just as strong even as the flowers go over and even after they have closed up until the flower drops and still the stench lingers in the greenhouse a day or so
