    Flowers very much like Neo falcata , but twice as big - at least. Natural spread about 1.5 inch , or say 3.5 - 4 cm. Spur on average an inch long. Foliage much like a rather vigorous Asctm- best leaves well over 6 inches long, half an inch wide, shallow vee shape .
    At one time - 10 years or so ago - I bought all the Neo hybrids I could get, and this is one of them which had been struggling for some years , but now likes my treatment - still, "only" one spike, out of the small mass of say 3 or 4 growths in the basket. about 21 flowers and buds.

    What should I call it, do you think ?

    This plant is going to top of my "got to have it" list if a name is figured out.

    It's definitely a Darwinara, probably Charm Blue Star or Blue Moon. Very dark coloured clone.

    I really love this color! Purple and pink are my colors. Unfortunately, so far the neo's don't do well with me. Maybe since this is a cross it would be easier....?
