    Default Best variety of Neofinetia falcata for fuukiran?

    Hi! I am wanting to try my hand at growing neofinetia falcata in the traditional raised bed Japanese style, and I would like to know which varieties would be best for that. I'd prefer something that is a vigorous grower, and flowers easily. Something on the smaller side would be nice, but not imperative. I like the ones with pink or green flowers. I particularly like Hisui and Shutenno. Since it's my first attempt at this, I don't want to break the bank, so no $$$ varieties please. I know these can get very pricey! Any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!

    Vanda falcata is a good one to have in collection but I don't have ideas on various forms of it. Sure someone would chime in

    After researching a bit, I think both Hisui and Shutenno are nice. The price is often dictated by the number of kabudachi. I have seen a number of Neo vendors that charge $20/kabudachi. So buying a Neo with a single kabudachi would be less expensive than one with multiple kabudachi.

    Thanks for your responses! I'm trying to get at least 2 growths, preferably more if it's feasible.

    I have both single and multiple growth Neo's and both have done well. A couple that I received as single growth Neo have now added one or more new growths. Again, depends on budget and how many you can afford. If you have patience, a single growth Neo can be very satisfying.
