    Default No label but y memory says Vandofinetia Lou Sneary "Singapore"

    Maybe you agree, ? Maybe you disagree ? ( with my memory - which is a fallible thing !) Let me know, do .
    When Neofinetia hybrids first appeared 20 (?) years ago I recall that there were several named clones of Lou Sneary around - Hong Kong and Singapore are two in particular and I bought them both. The labels have disappeared off several likkely plants, and they have not flowered for a few years due to poor culture by me ; but my vandaceous stuff mhas been on the up and up for a couple of years now. The original stem has gone, leaving two growths in the basket. One is flowering as seen, the other has two keiks - some years ago when it was a happy plant I recall that I had several spikes on this , but at least its made a start again.
    Flowers a bit bigger than the Neo. falcata parent, maybe an inch across ; the p[lant much bigger, maybe 10 inch or 12 inch leaf span.

    The plant and flower look just right for Neostylis Lou Sneary (Neofinetia falcata x Rhynchostylis coelestis). I can't find pics of 'Singapore' or 'Hong Kong' so no opinion on the specific clone. There were dozens of clones and perhaps also hundreds or thousands of unnamed seedlings of Lou Sneary distributed, and many looked pretty close to this.

    Neo hybrid registrations go back to 1960, and there were over a dozen by the time Lou Sneary was registered in 1970, so they do go back a bit more than 20 years.

    I have a couple of these Neostylis Lou Sneary orchids (one blue and one that is white with a touch of pink) Great orchids. Yours looks very nice, Geoff.
