Default List of Irregular Neofinetia Flowers

This is meant to be a sticky for the Neo Forum. The following is a partial list of fuukiran that have irregular shaped flowers. This may include flowers with extra parts, missing parts, downward facing, upward facing, completely misshaped, etc. Links are photos of the plant found on various internet sites. Not positive on the correct spellings of these.

Wow! What a great list! Thanks!! If and when my Shachikoryu decides to flower, I'll be sure to get pics. I also have Shunkyuuden, Sekai, Unkai, Hoshiguruma and Kutsuwamushi. But they are all new and I haven't seen any of them flower yet. Nevertheless, I can start threads for them that we can link to here.

I guess its obvious that I like weird flowers!!

Got some nice photos of 3 spurred Manjyushage with my camera. This plant belongs to Neo Jedi Master, Jason Fischer and the pic was taken by him at the greenhouse. Of course, it's all pimped in it's extremely expensive, beautiful pot. I could not afford this ensemble because I do not have children to sell on ebay.

Thanks for sharing, that one is gorgeous! I had never heard of a Neo having 3 spurs. It's really nice to be able to admire it here, because I don't even want to imagine the cost of such a plant!!

Completely orchid obsessed and loving every minute of it....
