A member of section Sestochilus.  Inflorescenses are single flowered. Usually they are produced singly from each pseudobulb, but sometimes 2 are produced.  Each is 2-4" long.  The flowers are yellow with a red spot at the bases of the lateral sepals.  The lip is also marked with red.  Do not disturb too often and let the plant grow 'outside" the basket for better blooming.  Resist repotting for 2-3 years until plants become nicely established and they will reward with long lasting (2-3 weeks) flowers year after year.  Sweetly scented and blooms beautifully in early spring through early summer for us.  Plants prefer bright light.  This equates to light required for Cattleyas.

 

Native to Borneo very easy to flower unfortunately no smell, yellow orange in color big flower 2 to 3 inches. Enjoy another jewel from Borneo.

 

Required Light: Bright, but indirect light, most of them will be happy in the same conditions as Phalaenopsis.

 

I grow my falcatum along with my Phallies, and it grows and flowers every year with not a problem. One thing to think about, though, is that most Bulbos like it very, very moist. I grow some of mine of pure Sphagnum moss, others in a 50/50 mixture of coarse bark and Sphagnum moss, as their roots are designed to take in water very slowly (unlike other orchids), so make sure that there is plenty of moisture around the roots to ensure plump pseudobulbs and you will be fine.

 

Most Bulbos are also warm, and this one definitely likes it warm. With regards to light, I would say that most Bulbos like it a little brighter than Phalaenopsis, but will grow fine along the same conditions as a standard Phalaenopsis.
