Bulbophyllum facetum Garay 1997
This is the first blooming of this philippine endemic in my collection. Compared with other members of the sestochilus section of Bulbophyllum that I grow, this one is a slow and deliberate grower that ocassionally loses growths due to rot, a rare thing among my Bulbophyllum. The flower came out of the side of the pseudobulb and initially I thought a new pseudobulb was going to develop.
