    I knew that. I watched this very well done video on a show of these types of orchids in Japan. I learned quit a bit about them. I only have one. I hope it will bloom someday.

    Surprisingly, they are cool to cold growers. They apparently like Colorado summers, protected from direct sun of course.

    This potting style does require repotting yearly as the sphag breaks down and the mound compresses over time.

    This one is now 12 fans. Some are still young but growing well.

    I'm experimenting with mine and growing it bare root. I got a young one that was not too expensive. I have a few Neo crosses that are blooming and happy.

    I adore all neos. I've got one of this variety, it hasn't bloomed yet. Something to look forward to!

    How are you growing this neo. bare root? I would think it would do well this way, no media to break down around the roots.

    I paid $20 for mine when I bought it. It had more than one fan too! My local orchid nursery sells them at a low price, IMO. Some nurseries sell them by the fan growth. You want 4 fans? $80!

    Not to hijack Harvey's thread but here is a photo. I got the cool vase at the thrift store for 25 cents. It is perfect because it holds up the plant part and provides lots of humidity around the roots which can just hang down. Every day I spray the roots with pure rain water. Every so often I fill it up and soak it for a half hour or so, pour it out and rinse. Or I lift it out and spray with dilute fertilizer then rinse with rain water. I can fine tune what I do by looking at the roots. There is always a little pure rain water in the bottom. One root is in the water. It has been living like this for about 5 or 6 weeks and at least hasn't died. It's a White Flamingo.

    The vase looks like the ones to force bulbs to bloom indoors. Thanks for the photo and telling us all how you are doing the bare root growing.
