I was wondering about the number of petals in this case.
I believe Orchid flower has 6 petals 3 in each whorl.
Can any one elaborate what is the case here?


Have put here a close-up of flowers, also put a cropped version of the close-up.
Not sure of the number of petals / sepals.
Referred … FOS and found that the green structures are scapes — perhaps there must be as many flowers as many scapes.
Please correct me if mistaking.

With two leaves, this could be Bulbophyllum fimbriatum but there are more plants I assume with two leaves in S. India. … pic is obviously fimbriatum 🙂
