It's a bulbophyllum of some kind, once the flower blooms all the way you'll know for sure. Exciting stuff!

I do believe you are be right!
I did buy a lasiochilum ‘dark’ ages ago but got a few bulbos mixed up, didnt pay attention and didnt know where i ended up planting it.
Thank you for the ID, i was wondering what happened to this one, hahaha!

Its amazing, it was looking like a ducks head for ages getting bigger and bugger then all of a sudden.... this! Such a beautiful and strange flower, i would love to know if it has developed because of a specialty pollinator in the wild.

Does anyone else see the weird face with big eyelashes in the 1st of the two photographs? It's in the center of the flower, more or less. It looks like it has stereotypical "Asian eyes" (if you'll forgive that), a rather bulbous nose, and pulled-in lips.

I can't really edit photographs, I don't think, or I'd circle the area. It should be somebody's avatar.

EDIT: I re-learned how to do things in mspaint! Here it is:



Can't really say which emotion it's portraying...

It does have a mobile lip. The petal that was circled in that picture can rock back and forth and trap a pollinator while it puts its pollinia on the back of the fly (usually).

I’ve seen some of my other Bulbo species get a larger fly like an M domestica get stuck and die. The pollen can then travel using the decaying insect as a vector to fertilize itself. I kept the fruit on it to show the fly that kinda crusted in the end for a while.

You, sir, are a man of keen imagination. I can see all three of those things in that "head".

Nice job! I used to have that plant. I should get one again. I remember it was a pretty easy bloomer.

That statement rings true to what is happening in the tank Hydrophyte, 7 months after planting and of the 15 different orchids i have planted this was 1 of only 2 to have flowered so far. Heres hoping for more blooms!!
