    Oooh! Such delicate looking blooms!!

    I like how it looks like it's crawling out of the basket at the roots, too.

    Looks great, Bruce! Do you know the cross? I'm assuming it has a Neo as a parent...

    Default HI!

    Not to steal Bruce's thunder, but it is:

    Rainbow Gem = Neo. falcata x Ascda. Flambeau.

    I'm getting to really like the Neo crosses. I can bloom them, unlike the straight species. My Neo is huge and hasn't bloomed once in the three years I've had it.

    Thank you both! Neofinetia influence is really strong, isn't it? Lovely plant.
