Default Neofinetia falcata Shunkyuden

This past weekend I attended the National Capital Orchid show and arrived early on the first morning. Last year I discovered the members table had a few Neofinetia so I wanted to check the assortment this year, fingers crossed.

There were a dozen Neos at this table and immediately I found the Shunkyuden as it has one open flower and two buds. You can’t miss these wonky blooms.

There were nice Neos this year, most of which I already own so I was very conservative and only purchased the one. I did however, help a nice woman with many questions about Neos and she purchased two for herself. She wanted a Neo with colored flowers and there were two Shutennou available, she was thrilled. She also chose a nice Tamakongo. She thought my Shunkyuden was a beautiful plant with an ugly bloom!

I also purchased a couple of plants from J&L, a Masdevallia nidifica and two Macroclinium aurorae. Long story but my last Macroclinium is struggling to hang on and I wanted to try again. Cordelia was as friendly and helpful as always. My daughter had a great time and added a few plants to her collection as well.

Here is the lovely Shunkyuden!

I love the wackiness of Shunkyuden blooms, and I considered getting one earlier this year, but I had other Neos above it in my Neo wishlist. The good news is that it's now at the top of the list! My collection goals are to have diversity in leave type/color, but also bloom diversity.

I'm not at all familiar with Macroclinium, I'll have to look up the genus.

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

This had been my goal as well until I found the bean leaf Neos, then I wanted as many as I could find. The Shunkyuden has flowers very much like Seikai, wish mine would bloom. I looked at a large Shunkyuden at Al’s a few months ago and knew I had to have one. I believe his plant was several hundred dollars and many growths, covered in wonky blooms.

I hope you find one, this plant is small yet with two growths. I was happy to have found it at the show.

The Macroclinium are amazing tiny orchids with fascinating blooms. The two new plants are much larger than my current, weak plant. I hope these two will be happier. You should check them out, a bit hard to find though Andy’s has them as well as J&L.
