Hard to find Bulbophyllum trigonosepalum, large seedling
You don't see this one every day.
Bulbophyllum trigonosepalum is native to the Philippines and known for producing really pretty flowers that can, like a lot of bulbos, have an unpleasant odor. Probably because they evolved to attract flies as pollinators.
The flowers can be several inches long and the ascending flower spike emerges from the base of the pseudobulb. The plant itself is something of a miniature, and probably won't get much taller than 6 to 8 inches. Something of a sequential bloomer.
Inflorescences will produce 3-5 flowers over a period of 2 months, producing 1 to 2 flowers at a time. Individual flowers are 2 to 3 inches high.
The ones we have are seedlings, just moved out of a grow tray and repotted into 3-inch pots. They have two to three pseudobulbs, and we always ship the largest.
We're guessing 18 to 24 months before you'll see a flower, but well worth the wait. You won't see many of these on the show table at an orchid society meeting.
