Neostylis Pinky ‘Starry Night’

Neostylis Pinky is a primary hybrid of Neofinetia falcata and Rhychostylis gigantea.  I’ve had it for several years.  Each year it puts out two spikes, but this is the first year I haven’t had them blast on me, probably because I waited until it was a little further along with the spikes before I rewarded it with water.  It has a pleasant scent, sort of like a floral scented soap.  There is the soapy afterscent, but the initial impression is floral.

 

Vanda lamellata v. remediosae

This little plant is quite a champ.  Every year at this time, it pumps out one or two spikes with lovely lemon scented flowers.  This year was no disappointment.
