Starting with Neofinetia falcata - these beautiful little gems surely deserve their own thread!
If one wishes to read up on this subject, here is one of the numerous articles: ( clicking on the history link upper left to start)
http://www.neofinetia.com/

I keep my plants in bright light/sun throughout the indoor season in a special rack which hangs over the glass door on the North wall.
This location is the coolest spot in the greenhouse to slow down their growth during the Winter. I still water daily, since they dry out very fast under my conditions.
I don't grow them in the traditional Sphagnum "wrap", which holds moisture longer. And, despite watering, my Neofinetias do go through some dormancy and start waking up in late March/early April. At that time I see a lot of root growth. This Spring I was amazed and happy to see so many of them spiking.
Although Neofinetia falcata can and should be very much enjoyed without the blooms - they are wonderful little plants with beautiful leaf patterns and many interesting variations in form. However the blooms are not only exquisite to look at, they also have a very enjoyable scent starting at sun-down and continuing into the evening, mainly of Vanilla with varying aspects of Honeysuckle, Tuberose and Gardenia.

Here is now Neofinetia falcata var. Tamakongo

Even the older leaves show the nice variegation. New leaves are produced during the Summer.

Nf Byakko has the nice Tiger markings. Hakuun is supposed to have similar markings, but I find the Byakko coloration a lot more pronounced/nicer.

Nf Shunkyuden always seems to bloom a little later in the season and the flowers are very interesting since they have extra flower parts.
