    Default Neofinetia falcata

    This plant refuses to flower with more than one stalk, this year I got 6 flowers. The size of the plant with all it's growths should be able to put up a massive display of flowers. But I think that I need to give it an cooler and brighter resting period then I can at the moment!

    For reference: the pot is almost 10 cm high (4'')

    I find that when an established Neo. refuses to put up more than one inflouresence - it repeats a bloom in about a month. I had one send four stalks up, one at a time.......maddening but a long period of bloom.

    How beautiful! We gave away a mounted one a few weeks ago and kept a far more established one in a pot. It has grown beautifully, but put out 2 separate pathetic blooms over the past 3 months or so. It's inside, in bright indirect light, in temps around 75F almost all the time during the summer period - outside it gets to be about 100F in the shade.

    Do Neos bloom freely or do they have a season? We saw one last Christmas covered in blooms - in a greenhouse, of course.

    It is native to Japan. In the wild it have a cool very bright winter rest as the trees in the forest they live loses their leafs. It should flower in the spring after the rest.

    So I guess we'll have to content ourselves with this year's showing - and hope for more next year. Thanks for the info!
