I got a Neofinetia Falcata from a fellow forummer about 3 months ago without spike. Never expected it to spike and bloom so quickly.

It started spiking about one month ago.

The spike grew longer after 3 weeks.

Finally it bloomed today. Yeah!

P.S. Btw anyone knows where to get other varieties of Neo. Falcata. I am hoping to get the Variegated leave type and those with other flower colours.

I think either have to wait until July or try WL and Song.

Yup, its the one I got from you. It has a new growth too. Please post pictures of your plant too. Is it the same variety as the one I have?

Hi digitalgate, what are your local growing conditions like? Mine has been in hibernation for years...

I just got a Shutenno, and am looking for tips to grow it and get it to flower regularly in our tropical climate. Anyone has a clear idea? The links I found online just mention providing a mild dry winter condition with lots of light, so I can't even keep it in the fridge... Is it possible to just provide eternal summer for it and still get healthy growth and regular flowering?
