Default Awaharibeni in spike!

I have had this plant for over a year, May 2017. It was a Motherís Day gift purchased from Orchids Web. It has grown well though it has always had a few leaves with yellow tips, never lost any leaves.

This morning while watering well, we are going to be away for a few days, I found the tiniest spike! I never expected this plant to flower. I actually had to grab a macro lens to be sure this really is a spike itís that small. Or my old eyes are worse than I thought

According to Orchids Web once it begins to flower it can bloom off and on for an entire year. Iíll be happy with once, hope to see flowers soon.

In the first picture the spike is at the top of the plant a bit to the right. Hard to see.

I love that one! Been eying it on NWO, didn't know OW sells it... The growth habit is just so interesting and the variation from the pine needle types is super cool. I also think the flower in combo with the needle growth habit will be quite beautiful, look forward to photos of it with the flowers open!

Thank you U bada! It is a neat Neo, reminds me a bit of Seiryujishi without the twist. I have Seiryujishi as well and love that one too. I like needle leaf Neos, for the most part they stay small. I have Fukujumaru, itís real small (like a mini needle leaf) and Yoroidoushi.

Seiryujishi has normal size flowers, this Awaharibeni looks like the blooms may be very small. I almost missed them this morning and was very surprised. I will be sure and update when the flowers open. I hope to see a bit of pink in the bloom. Iím not sure if Iíve seen pictures of Awaharibeni blooms.

If you like the needle leaf Neo you should have one or two, great plants even if they never flower. When my Seiryujishi flowered I was shocked! Al was jealous as hell, Seiryujishi is his favorite Neo and his plant has never flowered. Of course I had to show him pictures.

Thanks for your info on those types... I love all the ones you've mentioned. I've asked fore seiryujishi and a yoroidoushi from Satomi and separate occasions and lost out... lol. Actually I hadn't known of fukujumaru, another to add to list!

So was the seiryujishi you bloomed from Al's seiryujishi? It's curious it hadn't bloomed for Al in his GH... you scored a point for us home growers!

Just today realized how much money I spent this year just on neos, going to have to start fasting on the now... maybe an awaharibeni next year if I can last LOL Best to let all my new ones settle in anyway, I admire you because you seemed to have mastered restraint for the last couple years you've been collecting and still manage to have such an interesting mix of them...
