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!
Wow, love the colour.
nice color and lip, very pretty
Beautiful blooms. Are you growing this in sphagnum?
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.
I hope mine blooms that well when it gets a little older and larger. Very nice!
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
