Bulbophyllum romyi B.Thoms 2015
I saw this plant this orchid yesterday. I was told a shipment that arrived on the island labeled as Bulb fascinator, turned out to be all Bulbophyllum romyi. This is one case where I am sure nobody is complaining. The color of this orchid makes it very hard to get a good photo. I had to use the phone camera to capture the incredibly dark lip. When I took photos with my DSRL camera, the flower comes out red, beautiful, but highly unrealistic. The plant I saw is still young, I was told that when it gets bigger the flower will be even more impressive.
