Bulbophyllum odontopetalum

Bulbophyllum odontopetalum is a micro-miniature species from New Guinea.  Its flowers, which look like a tiny Dracula flower, are only 2 cm and are produced on 3 cm growths, a tiny pseudobulb and single leaf.  The flowers spikes are wiry and 4 cm.  Mine is mounted on cork and seems to prefer cool temperatures and higher light.
