Bulbophyllum grandiflorum

Bulbophyllum grandiflorum is a warm growing species common in Sumatra, New Guinea and the surrounding islands. It grows on the lower trunks of large trees throughout the rain forest there.  The odd shaped flower is spotted like a baby deer, and smells like pepper to me. Like most bulbophyllums, this one prefers to be kept moist throughout the year.
