I am really enjoying the Neofineta season this year… I have had one plant after the other releasing each other since this summer, filling the orchid room with the lovely scent of vanilla and spices. This is the regular white variety, but a fairly recent acquisition (‘Hisui’) with a nice yellow hue is coming up next, the buds are about to open any day now. Something to look forward to. I grow this, like all my Neos, mounted on bark in the warm/intermediate vivarium. (Guess I should have cleaned off the algae before photographing… )
Neofinetia falcata (Thunb.) Hu, Rhodora 27: 107 (1925).
