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'')
And two close-up pictures
Wow are those gorgeous flowers or what! Too pretty... It is definitely a happy looking plant. Great job!
Do not worry about your spelling the great picture tells us all we need to know.
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.
holy ROOTS! and very pretty blooms.... :0)
