    Default 3 new neos: Shutennou, Kibana, Toyozakura

    My standard neo is just about to open the first earned flowers, and that means that I can add some more because I can bloom it I've just added 3 neos to my collection. Had a few minutes today after dinner so I decided to repot them quickly using Ron's method, and finish of the six pack that I cracked at dinner just to make sure that I had enough bottles to spread the sphag over. Here's the set up and the three neos freshly repotted. The 3 growth one is the Shutennou, the larger single growth is the Kibana, and the baby is Toyozakura (only has one mature root and 2 new ones just started 1/8" so the seller just threw it in).

    They look great! With ron's technique I'm surprised you could sit up straight let alone wrap your plants with sphag. Those are some great neos too--you'll be happy with them.
