    First is Angraecum Didierii, next is Angraecum Leonis, then Neofalcata yellow and finally Neost. Pinky 'Starry Night' (neof. falcata x Rhy gigantea) If anyone knows when the Neofalcata yellow, Angraecum Leonis and Pinky bloom, I would appreciate you letting me know. The Didierii is Maura's and it has already bloomed. I would love to know more about the Neofalcata yellow too, because it didn't list any crosses or hybrids and I thought I was getting the species Neofalcata. Obviously Pinky 'Starry night' is a cross, but if you know anything about ii, I would love to know.

    As you can see, I can't spell or type and don't know very much at all about my orchids. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you, Phillip

    Thank you, thank you I am taking my bows. Actually Maura has been so busy re potting that the last thing I would do is take a bow. I think I've got the Angraecum Leonis figured out as far as blooming - late fall through winter. The Neo Falcata's are still a mystery to me - I just know nothing about them. Is a Neo Falcata yellow a species orchid or not. See, I have decided to be contrary and only go after the species and other strange and not so well known orchids. Thing is, I know nothing about them either. MEC has tried giving me research,but I can't make heads or tales of it so far. Again, any input into the Neo Falcata's is much appreciated. Thank y'all, Phillip

    Good collection, Phillip. I can see Maura is going to have some stiff competition.

    I dont know if the neo is a species but go ahead and treat it as you would treat the species. They require bright light 2000-3000 FC (Cattleya light) and keep it moist at all times. I have one and i let it dry out without any problems, its growing a new leaf and 2 keikis. They love high humidity too but arent picky about it.

    Thank you so much Byron. I will keep it in the indirect light of our South facing sliding glass door, keep it moist and see what happens. I'll post pics as soon as something happens. Thanks again, Phillio

    I am welcoming any competition - in fact, I enjoy challenging him to take good enough care of these plants so that I can take them over in decent shape when he gets tired of all the work these things require - if you live in an apartment, without a greenhouse, in a climate that's too hot when it's sunny and humid, growing orchids demands that you juggle light vs. humidity and inside vs. outside constantly, and every learning experience include massive research, a lot of potting and repotting, and, very often, a little orchid corpse. Bonsai growers claim they kill lots of trees in the first few years, but I seriously doubt they can kill them as fast as a beginning grower can kill a beautiful, prized orchid. Besides - I'm thinking of bonsai-ing a gardenia, so we'll each be walking the other's path. (Oh, and it's pretty tough to squish a bonsai tree by stepping on it).

    Nothing like good, healthy family competition!

    Neofalcata yellow, ummmmmmmmmm! You probably mean Neofinetia falcata , yes it is a species, the "yellow" I will explain. Neof. falcata (thats how you write it) has 3 color groups, white-cream, green-yellow, and pink-lavender group. You probably have a yellow colored one. There are a couple of site dedicated to this orchid that I can PM you if you like.
