    Smile Newly Repottted Neofinitia

    My most recent addiction outbreak is Neofinitia. I have 6 of them now. They are mostly mature enough to bloom. But only 2 have multiple growths.

    I have acquired some neofinitia pots and have attempted to pot them in the traditional mounding style.

    Wow. You have quite a collection of Neo's. I am no expert on this but the potting style looks very nice and traditional. Wish we could get some neo's here.

    I'm very curious about this as I have a white neo which is mounted with just a tiny bit of moss and the roots grow abundantly in the open (see previous post here). Seems quite a different set up to the traditional approach which has all the roots covered... wondering if I should be covering up the roots on mine with more moss? I understand these have been reclassified as Vandas (see this discussion) so I thought they might prefer the "bare root" treatment more?

    I understand they are very adaptable and are happy as you grow them too.

    I have a neo that has not bloomed yet. I assume it is a typical white one since it had no special varietal name. It is in a small wooden basket with lots of sphagnum all around. It appears to be blooming size. The roots are very prolific, and the plant seems happy. It came with one large fan, and two medium fans, but has since developed 5 mini fans for a total of 8. I hope this is a good sign (I've killed two in years past) that it will bloom out nice when it gets the urge to.

    I hear to make sure they bloom, assuming mature enough, they must NOT dry out during May or June. It will cause them to abort blooming for the season.

    The traditional culture , according to an American trader who buys them in Japan, and brings them to Uk shows to sell occasionally, is the grow on a mound of moss heaped well above the basket/pot. So a lot of roots are exposed to the air. Personally I pot them a bit lower down, on less of a mound, and then the roots go down into the moss and emerge through the basket and are exposed in the air. I can grow them well, but don;t get a lot of flowers. I think they need a colder dry winter rest than I give.
