    Default Vandofinetia Little Blossom (Neofinetia falcata x Vanda Miss Joachim)

    I have been looking forward to this one for almost one year. I got it at the 20th WOC in Nov. 2011 in Singapore. This is the remake of the famous 1967 Japanese cross. The nursery is a very old one from Singapore. According to them, they used a better Vanda Miss Joachim and Neofinetia for this cross. They also promised me that the plant would bloom throughout the year and that was not difficult to believe, since it was blooming then, and I could see small stubs from earlier blooms very close to one another. Then it took some time to get acclimatized and finally it is flowering now with just 2 flowers and one bud. But I am sure as it grows up, will have better displays.

    The second picture just to show how small the plant is, the Neofinetia influence on the spur is quite dominant.

    Very delicate coloration. The leaves seem to have taken after the vanda parent. Did it inherit the neo's fragrance?

    Grace and beauty that shows nature's light touch even if it is a hybrid. AL

    Thanks Cathy and Lizgeo, I hope you find one soon, If this one is not available in the US, try to find a Neofinetia x Papilionanthe teres, that one has been in the trade for a long while and the flowers look very similar, just that they are a bit smaller and lack the rosy pink shades.

    Yes the plant very much is like the vanda parent also super vigorous and heat loving. I do not remember about the fragrance from last year. I will ask my mom and let you know.

    Beautiful, Amey! I am a fan of neofinetias, but not usually the crosses - but this one is a true exception. Wonderful success that you have been able to bloom it again so soon after the change in environments!
