Yesterday, I received three emails from Satomi on their June list. She embedded links to pictures on Facebook or Flickr. The first email, there was somekind of error but very few plants had been sold. She then sent another email, correcting whatever problem was present in the first spread sheet, but about an hour later, she sent out a third email with a corrected list but updated each time with 'sold'. By the third email, most of the Neofineta that I would have bought were 'sold'! Even with problems, her customers really wanted to buy her Neofinetia.

Good thing Satomi does not export to Belgium. I would have gone bankrupt by now.
Over here There are practically no variety's available, hybrids yes, but I really want the species. Good thing Kirsten comes to Europe every year so I can get them from her and I hope she will be coming for a long time as my list keeps on growing, Lol.

Kristen/New World Orchids (NWO) is an excellent source of Neofinetia, Marc. Unfortunately NWO, Seed Engei, and Orchids Limited are only too happy to send me as many plants I desire!

Well Dries, I ordered some. I lost many of my Neo's amongst other orchids last winter due to a big mistake by the movers. So I'm getting some replacements and a few more. Kirsten expects to be coming in august.

And Dries, could you share your Neo info with me so I can add it to my database (Fuukiran Database). It's slowly comming together.

There are many Neofinetia plants up for auction ending 07/02/14 and 07/03/14 from Seed Engei. There are several Neofinetia from orchidslimited as well. Seed Engei normally does auctions. Orchidslimited seems to do buy it now. In all of the time I have been buying plants through bidding from Seed Engei, I have often wondered why they didn't do buy it now. This plant is up for bid AND buy it now!

NANGOKU-NO-MAI 南国の舞

This plant has unusual flower as described by Seed Engei: "Flower is similar to SHUNKYUDEN but this variety does not have flower spurs.Produce pink color on petals compared to Shunkyuden. Very popular flower variety because of big flower and color. " Plant and photo from Seed Engei.

Wow! Somebody bought it at the "buy it now" price and took Nangoku-no-Mai out of consideration.

Orchids Limited has several Neofinetia falcata on buy it now/eBay. Sometimes this vendor just takes quick shots and posts the pictures of the plants up for auction but once in awhile, some one takes the time and effort to compose a picture and present the plant in the most breath taking way...here are photos from Orchids Limited that transcends the mundane of plants for sale into a work of art.

'Kogane Nishiki' 黄金錦 by MattWoelfsen, on Flickr

The 'Kinkujyaku' 金孔雀 (Orchids Limited translates this as "Golden Peacock") is potted in a regular pot and bark. I received an email from them that stated that they were migrating their Neofinetia stock away from traditional style BUT will ship the plant back to traditional style if requested.

While I am NOT in the market for more Neofinetia, these three plants give me pause....go to eBay and see the other pictures of these three plants. The other photos are very nice and show such a clarity of vision. Be warned: do so at your own risk--these are credit card or money sucking plants! LOL!
