Neofinetia falcata

My larger Neofinetia falcata is starting to bloom. There are lots of buds yet to open. I picked the plant up to look at it and see that there is root damage. It appears to be the work of a slug or snail.

Neofinetia falcata grows in Japan, Korea and the Ryukyu Islands. The species grows on deciduous trees and get more light in winter. They are fragrant and tolerate a wide range of temperatures. The genus Neofinetia (Neof) contains 3 species from Japan, Korea and the Ryukyu Islands.
