    Wow - that name is quite a keyboard-full! What a cool orchid, Yew -and what a great cross it turned out to be. Phillip and I have a few baby Lou Snearys - probably years before (that is IF) we see what they look like - but nothing as exotic as this.

    Actually, Phillip has a variegated Neofinetia falcata 'Higashidemiyako', which is in a small bark-based pot. It has some new growth and seems to be okay, but I wonder if you know of a better way to cultivate it. No urgency - just if you get a chance.

    Mine is doing extremely well mounted on a small slab of split log - more like a 15 inch long 1x2 . But in the nurseries seedings are grown in bark-based or coconut husk based pots. So I think you and Phillip are doing the right thing. I have not been growing seedlings for some time and buy adult plants either blooming size or with flowers nowadays. At my age I think I don't have the luxury/time(what's left of it) to wait for seedlings to bloom. But I must say there's simply nothing to compare with the joy and satisfaction of growing your seedlings until you see the first blooms.

    Thank you, Yew - to be honest, I prefer buying mature plants as well, but I have a hard time finding good species, so the seedlings are more of a necessity than a choice.

    Lovely, it seem that Neostylis Lou Sneary more dominant the flower and plant relatively small.
