Blooming size but NOT in flower now In the Vanda family of orchids Makes lots of fragrant flowers A miniature orchid Grow on a windowsill
A member of the Vanda Alliance, this Japanese Wind Orchid is considered a miniature that is a fairly easy grower for those who like interesting flowers but are short on space.
Each inflorescence bears three to six white to blush flowers that are about an inch or so across. They are usually very fragrant, especially at night. These are monopodial, with alternating leaves and they tend to bloom in late summer or early fall.
Neofinetia can do very well under lights. It can be grown in a small pot or basket, in a tree fern or bark mix. Some people grow them in sphagnum moss, but we prefer a bark mix.
These are seedlings, so water at least every other day. They are generally considered to require intermediate temperatures. No direct sunlight, but dappled light is OK.
This species has been cultivated by the Japanese warrior class for centuries. At one time anyone who was not a member of the elite samurai class was forbidden to possess a specimen of the plant. This species is native to Japan, Korea and parts of China.
The breeding on this one is Neofinetia falcata 'White Flamingo' AM/AOS x Neofinetia falcata Amani. These have a leaf span of about 3.5 to 4 inches. They are NOT in flower now. Each leaf is about 2 inches long. They are small, but they are growing nicely and we have seen them bloom when smaller than these. No guarantees, however. Our guess is that they are a year or so from first flowering. We have a number of them and we'll pick out a nice one for you. We always ship the largest. Most have two growths. If you could find one of these in bloom at an orchid show, it would probably sell for something north of $35.
