Bulbophyllum patens is a lowland, swamp forest epiphyte wanting warm to hot conditions and high humidity.  They typically produce a single purple-red flower per growth with a broad, open stance to its petals and sepals.  These are blooming size plants.

These plants are potted in my preferred way for bulbos, meaning half the pot is an aggregate (LECA or perilite), with a frosting of a mosture holding substrate on top (sphagnum or tree fern fluff).  This helps maintain a humidity reservoir for the roots without it acutally being "wet", and tends to yield better root growth than sphagnum alone for me.  These can also be grown mounted if you prefer. 

You will get the plant shown or one similar in size.  Thes are recently repotted, and blooming size.
