    Default Neo Amami Hiroba and Shutenno

    Here are a couple of neos in bloom. The Amami Hiroba (the white) has two spikes and the Shutenno (pink penducles) has 5 but only the first has opened. I just love how these smell--heavenly.

    Thanks for looking.

    Just gorgeous! I especially love the tinge of pink on the second one. And five spikes too--good job growing and blooming them!

    So pretty!! I especially love the one with the purple on them but they are both gorgeous and you have so many flowers, this is one species I dont think I will try growing due to the complicated potting method ( I would kill it for sure) so I am so happy to be able to enjoy yours. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    They really aren't that hard--I'll pm you a site that shows you how to do the potting. I try to pot them the "neo way", but am no expert. And some people I know grow them without the special potting--really I think the potting style is more about presentation.
