While it's not a shima or any unusual form, but I just got my normal sized Sedirea japonica to spike for the first time in my care! It has two spikes. It hasn't bloomed since I go tit almost three years ago!

I have a Nagoran mounted and its very easy to take care of. I just soak it once a week and all is well.

Well I missed out on that other Neo but look at this beauty that just came from Satomi, Rain-No-Hikari. The variegation is TDF. :)

Absolutely beautiful Ginger! Considering how beautiful this plant is, and how well you potted it, you got a really good deal! Now I want one!!!

Yes, she sent a lovely one didn't she. I am making a new pot for it now I don't like that one. I am feeling something white & gold.....lol...decorating with the pot such fun:). I think she has more they are on Seed-Engei website.

Good catch Red, I just asked Satomi for this plant yesterday, too late :(
On the good side, I will be able to see this plant on the OB instead of my windowsill, therefore no chance for me to kill it :D

Oh oh! More plants up for auction on Sunday! I wonder if there will a "winter rest" for vendors too? My daytime temperatures are staying around 50*F so if I do order more plants, they should be fine for the hour or two they are in the parcel box. I know that many vendors offer heat packs, but is there a point in time where any orchid vendor stops selling plants to folks like me who have cold winter days?

You have a good eye; we are always on the look out for special Neos. It certainly would have been safer with you that me but I will give it my best shot for both of us. :blushing:;)

Matt, I don't think Seed Engei will stop selling plants in the winter... You I have to decide if you take the risk to get some shipped, but the vendors are not responsive for plants which turn into ice blocks during shipping ;)
On the other hand, I have got some plants shipped in December or January from Satomi (shipped to Wa) and from other sellers from much colder States, and with a heat pack there was no problem. The heat packs stay warm for several days.
