Neofinetia falcata

Neofinetia falcata - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI got this Neofinetia falcata from Ian's Orchids on EBay. Neofinetia falcata - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI have some other plants and have found them pretty good. The plant had good roots and has grown well in the rocks. I will just leave it and see how big I can get it. It has three spikes.

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.

The plant is in a 4-inch plastic pot in rocks. There are 6 mature fans and at least 4 new growths visible. The plant stands 5 inches above the pot.
