Yes, you can grow them the same way. The Neostylis will not appreciate as much light as your vanda and Ascocenda. It will require a bit more shade but can be grown in a basket like your vandas. Best of luck with it, Partisia!that`s my Blue Magic and ascocenda on photo at the balcony (in summer)
May I treat the same with Neostylis Lou Sneary? (on second photo)...
That is great! I look forward to the photos of your neostyliss bloom!
hi bruce. im new to the site. great place for info and questions im also new to orchids and collecting them. ive found that im drawn to neo hybrids because of small size,color variation and of course most are scented. ive recently picked up a hybrid i really love but no one online seems to own one so i wondered if u had any advice for growing it. i picked it up from a grower in thailand. its a neofinetia falcata x vanda tessellata. flowers resemble a standard neo but are a silvery color almost grey in areas,slightly lavender in photos. its quite healthy and is growing in a hanging clay pot in a south facing window with no potting medium. wondered if i should add anything in the pot because its now indoors as opposed to a greenhouse. i soak it everyday and it gets misted daily. the scent is quite remarkable. it smells just like a standard tessellata(floral,musky,grapes). and it smells 24 hours a day!!! lol. the flowers have lasted a month and its spiking again. anyways any advice would be appreciated -richard
Welcome. How long have you been growing this one indoors? Have you noticed any change? If not, I would not change it. I have some vandas that just grow in lava rock to stabilize them. If this neo x vanda cross is doing well in that open pot with no medium, then let it alone. If if is showing signs of dehydration, then you can add a bit of large bark medium to the pot to help it hold a bit more moisture. I suspect if you are watering it that much and often and have a good fan blowing on it, it will continue to do well for you. This cross will require high light levels but from your photo it appears to be getting plenty of light. (notice the light green leaves).
Good luck to you. Beautiful blooms!!
Very nice video. That is one healthy plant, Bruce. I like that delicate blue of the blooms.
