    Default Neofinetia Falcata

    This is the traditional Japanese 'Wind Orchid', which was at one time raised by the shoguns. It is a small plant, that's a 2" pot that it is in, with a lovely fragrance. Other Neos have pink, purple, red and orange in their blossoms.

    Very delicate, Diane! I love the pure whiteness! Neos are quite a Japanese obsession - I'm not surprised you have some.

    I went on a crazy hunt for Neos and finally bought one. I *think* it's coming to me soon.... SOoooooooooo excited!!!! I'm afraid I decided for some strange reason I HAD to have oneand it took me so long to find one that I wanted, I may now become a Neo freak... I've been told there are blue ones as well? That's certainly on my list for the future.... as well as one with variegated leaves.
    Very pretty plant Diane!

    I love that the spikes are pure white. They're a part of the bloom, unlike most spikes.

    Nice photo. I love this plant so much, I want to have more that in other colors, but they all seem pretty expensive. So I begin collecting its hybrides. I now have

    Ascda. Blue Tahourdin x Neof. falcata
    Neostylis Lou Sneary 'Lea' AM/AOS
    Darwinara Charm 'Blue Star' HCC/AOS

    These are blue or pink, and fragrant.
