Neostylis Lou Sneary 'Bluebird'

Been thinking about getting one of these for a while - finally saw one for 9 bucks so I couldn't pass it up.  I don't have many Vandaceous plants - humidity is a bit low - but what the heck, we'll see.  This plant is a mericlone of a primary hybrid between Neofinetia falcata and Rhynostylis coelestis.  It generally meets all the conditions for making it into my collection.  1) Heat tolerant, 2) Species or primary hybrid, 3) fragrant.

This plant also stays very small, which is nice, though I don't pay much attention to that criterion with my Cattleyas.

It came in a pot - these plants are usually grown in baskets, often with no medium.  I will move it to a 4 inch wood basket when new roots start.


  1. I have found that moving this type plant out of a pot will be a setback no matter what. It will do better in the long run it you do and I think growing these in a pot is tricky.

  2. Very nice Blog, i did such added yours since i like the picture quality. and 9 bucks is such a good price ! lucky you hehe
