    you mean re-potted? Nice group of Neos.

    I haven't repot my collection for years now...I think I will have to do it sometime this year. I added the manjyushage variety to the collection recently and I can't wait to see the flower with three spurs.

    You have got quite a nice stand full of Neos, If they all bloom together, it must be a sight to behold !!

    Shunkyuden is a neat one, or odd but very interesting IMO.

    Naoki meant remounding which is a Japanese style of potting neofinetias using spaghum spun round the roots of the neofinetia and made into a compact ball and then placed in a small pot, which I think you can see from the picture Naoki has posted.

    LOL! I misread it as "remounted"...however I would still call it repotting though since I grow few of mine in Japanese style as well.

    I think most of the odd ones are slow growers. Is yours still a single growth plant?

    I divided(took out the older growth/main growth) my shunkyuden in 2008 for a trade and my plant had not been the same for two years. It has five growths now but it was a slow come-back. (btw, I grow my shunkyuden on stick mount and it looks quite neat.)
