    Default Nakamotoara Newberry Apricot

    this little guy finally flowered for me. i thought i'd nearly lost it at one point, but it came back strong. it does have a light scent, in strong light. very sweet smelling. flowers are a little over an inch across. i have it growing outdoors on a shaded balcony, and it came through the winter quite well. oncidium lighting does fine for this one. it might be a vanda relative, but i don't think it needs vanda light levels. there is a second spike coming, but only 2 flowers on that one. i may have to get some more of these neofinetia hybrids. especially if they have scent!

    Beautiful blooms. Are you growing this in sphagnum?

    cheers,

    there is a pad of sphagnum on top, medium bark mixed with ceramic pellets and tree fern fiber with some moss mixed in under the moss padding. in a treefern pot. from what i read, people grow neos this way, so i followed suit. i'm letting it dry some in between watering, but trying not to let it go bone dry. and stateless - that's the vanda cristata lip. i bought this after falling in love with all the lips v. cristata hybrids inherit.

    this is its first blooming. the second spike only has 2 buds, since mealies ate the other 2 before i discovered them.

    Question, do you think these would able to bloom under T-5 lighting? Sounds like they would. Cute plant and Petite colorful blooms, what's not to like. I see that some of these small compact vanda types do require higher light levels in order to bloom. Would you be able to list a few lower light required ones? Or send me a PM with a listing that would thrive under lights. Thank You, Rich
