    I always have trouble with white too. Very nice plant.

    When are these supposed to bloom? I've heard everything from spring bloomer to fall bloomer.

    I Tried turning off the flash still didn't come out right . I have 2 of the Neos. when I repotted they had divided themselves , next time I will stuff them in the same basket . This one in bloom the other isn't . Mine aways blooms about this time of the year . I think it depends on the temps. and light . I have them in the house , they get no special care . A good one for you if you don't have one , one problem lolol they smell good like coconut . Gin

    Kevin b gave me one a while ago. It was just a keiki, so it is taking it's sweet time to do anything. I think it is finally doing something now. Mike said keikis can take forever to bloom though.

    I really like the smell of those, too. Gin, yours are ahead; mine haven't opened yet. But they always bloom around this time too.


    Actually, that pic isn't so bad. I've taken far worse of those, where the little flowers end up so washed out and blurry they look like Q-tips.

    I am resurrecting another very old thread. I was pleased to see L I Jane had participated in this Forum. She was such a great and generous promoter of Neofinetia falcata. For many Furan growers, she helped folks acquire these plants in her time, when it was so difficult to find Neos in the USA.
