Nice photo of the orchids.  Where are the flowers ?  I think it is not the flowering season now.

Regards,

Mani.

Mani ji,

We could sight Bulbophyllum species in atleast half a dozen trees, none of them were flowering during the season. 
Sharing few photos from  another village, near Chandragutti, Soraba, Shimoga district

Bulbophyllum is the easy way out, but for those who dont know, tere
are many species which has bulbous leaf but they are not Bulbophyllum,
but they are found in South India. Next time please try to have
atleast fruits with the plants.....

If I had to make one guess then that should be "Bulbophyllum mysorense".
Why?

Regards
Pankaj
