Neofinetia falcata Seiryujishi

Post by Rhaen » Wed Mar 27, 2019 3:18 pm

Got this one at the beginning of the week. Repotted it today in the traditional kokedai style on a sphagnum moss ball.

This is a twisted needle type. They don't flower often and don't have fancy roots, so they are grown mainly for their unique leaf appearance.

Worth all the space it takes up and then a couple feet more! I've never seen it in person; thanks for documenting it on a website that I trust!

I wonder if it would keep the odd leaf shape if bred (when it does flower) with some of the Holcoglossum spp. that do tend to twist and turn as they grow?

Imagine the leaves a bit more darker "pine green" though. My camera has a tendency to add more yellow light than in real life. I think it's a white balance issue.
