One of the Neofinetia falcata plants is in bloom, and earlier than last year. It is doing well for me and I enjoy seeing it and how it is growing. That is the working definition of a plant I want as part of my collection.
Neofinetia falcata grows in Japan, Korea and the Ryukyu Islands. The species grows on deciduous trees and gets 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 flowers are interesting but frustrating. They are white and I find it very hard to get definition. For this type of flower I will always take a new flower picture to see if I can make an improvement. This time I feel that I did.
