    Default Neofinetia falcata - adaptable??

    I've been wanting to try one of these for awhile, but have understood that they are cool growing. My conditions are warm/intermediate with very good humidity and light. Winter night lows - 60, summer day highs around 82-84.

    How adaptable are they? What should I pay most attention to?

    Thanks !!

    John

    I wasn't aware that they liked cool climates in general. I know they like it cool and very bright in the winter. Mine haven't bloomed yet, but they were seedlings and have a way to go yet. Mine are mounted with sphagnum around the roots and are growing well. I have bloomed some crosses though.

    They prefer a cool dry rest in the winter but need high light at all times. But this temp drop does not seem necessary to get them to bloom.

    Thanks. Guess I'll hold off for awhile. Don't want any more challenges at the moment.

    Your temps sound fine. It's giving it the light that would be of any concern.
