    I really like this cultivar. The flowers open slightly lighter and darken with time. These photographs were taken about one week before they began to fail, when they are the very best in color. I grow it mounted on cork in the intermediate vivarium, quite bright with good air cirkulation and high humidity. I water abundantly when in active growth and a bit less during the winter months.

    I know, I agree... then add the amazing seductive scent to that and you really have the whole package.

    I adore it. Yellow neos are so awesome. As I mentioned on your blog, I have noticed that they have a fruitier fragrance than other colour forms of Neofinetia.
