    Default Nakamotoara Rainbow Gem

    This plant is easy to grow and seems to love to bloom. Check out how it looked last year when I posted it and compare it to this year's version. It is growing nicely. I love the triple (about to be a quadruple) show it is putting on. Nakamotoara is a cross between Ascocentrum x Neofinetia x Vanda, so it gets the size and fragrance of the neofinetia and the ascocnetrum and vanda share in making it grow fast with fairly minimal effort other than the basics.

    I love the tiny spotting on the bloom.

    And here is a shot of the entire plant from about the same perspective as the linked image above.

    Really, really lovely and it sure has done a lot of nice, healthy growing since the "before" picture! Very pretty.

    That is a nice one Bruce! Does it retain any of the Neof fragrance?

    Yes, it has a wonderful fragrance and also seems to retain the size of the neof.

    What a difference a year makes! I agree with you. I love the spotting. The delicate coloring is lovely too.
