Neofinetia falcata, the Japanese Warrior orchid
In hanging basket
VERY tropical; no shipping into subfreezing cold.
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. These are blooming size, large for this miniature, in 3.5 inch hanging baskets as shown.
Be prepared to 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. These have a leaf span of about 3.5 inches. They are NOT in flower now. The leaves are 3 to 4 inches long.
Some have bloomed already at least once. We have a number of them and we'll pick out a nice one for
you. We always ship the largest.
If you could find one of these in bloom at an orchid show, it would probably sell for something north of $45.
We ship USPS Priority Mail.
