    that's a most impressive specimen! the flowers look a bit odd for a pure neofinetia though, although i have to admit i am clearly not a neofinetia expert.

    Thanks Jason,
    I was thinking it looked more like neostylis myself....the lady I got it from is in her 80's......maybe she mislabeled it..she has had it for years. It is in a huge basket but you can't see anything but plants and roots....has to be living on decayed roots....but that evidently has not hurt it !!! It is a problem to judge when to water it. I have been letting it go about 10 days, but spritz the arial roots daily.

    whatever it is, it's very impressive and all those flowers must produce some kind of heavenly fragrance!

    Really nice growing, Gilda. Definitely impressive--the plant shows a lot of care has been put into it.
