Comments: This was originally listed as an outcross: Bulbophyllum rothschildianum 'Clack' x 'Baker's Chant'. Later, Charles Wilson determined that the capsule parent is a hybrid, likely Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Ann, which is the primary hybrid B. longissimum x B. rothschildianum. Therefore the offspring are likely only 3/4 rothschildianum. The photos presented have always reflected the parent plants.
