 Neofinetia falcata - Amami Island Giant
     Known as the Japanese Wind Orchid, or the Samurai’s Orchid it has been grown for centuries. There is a seemingly limitless variety of leaf colors and forms as well as flower colors and forms. The most “common” is that of solid green leaves and crystaline white flowers. AND, they are delightfully FRAGRANT!!! This variety, Amami Island Giant, sports the largest flowers of the species. A bonus to those without a great deal of space is that these are small plants, three inches to six inches tall. They are quite easy to grow under intermediate conditions and can be grown in a variety of potting mixes or on plaques.
