    This thread was at the very top of the page, yet, I've never noticed its presence before. ha~

    My favorites are any good colored tiger varieties. I understand the growing technic is important but each individual ( as there are now many from seed propagation) seems to have different levels of showing colors under the same conditions.

    I like certain striped varieties.

    All mine are fukurin, tiger, plain green and unique flower forms and colors. Oh, and one shima.
    All are readily available varieties, but I like what I have.
    They are reliable and cute enough for me.
    I'm not into typical flower forms of bean leaf nor dark pigmented leaf varieties.

    If I had ideal conditions, like greenhouse with higher humidity and proper winter, then I wouldn't mind getting expensive varieties like variegated ( white shima) Amami types as there are many beautiful mutations among that group.
    I would also love to have miniature plant bearing sky-facing flowers with three spurs ( forgot the name) as well as a good sized Hanamatoi. The latter are more affordable but still quite a bit, and good sized ones are not commonly offered.

    What I have:

    A couple of Amami Island strain
    Kinroukaku of different forms
    Koganenishiki
    Kinyuko
    Fugaku
    Higashidemiyako
    Gojofukurin
    Tenkeifukurin
    Fujinishiki
    Hisui
    Kishuryofuku
    Hanakanzashi
    Manjushage
    Kasen
    Hakuun
    Shutennou
    A few hybrids with typical flower shape with different colors
    Some that I don't know the English names of.

    Of these, I will get rid of most of the hybrids as they bloom out and keep only what I like the best.
    Also, Kishuryofuku, whose leaves arch gracefully but the flowers are basically white. I'd rather have more Hisui.
    Shutennou, mind is a crappy one. In search of a nice one.

    Does anyone know where I can get Shita-kiri Suzume at a descent price?

    Anyone feel like this should just be a regular post and not a sticky?

    I am so glad this thread was pointed out to me. I am very interested in Neofinetia but it seems a struggle to learn, in need of a field guide to the varieties in English. Hausermann’s has a vast table of seed-grown Neofinetia in regular and net pots/bark, with roots sprawling all over each other. It’s fun to search for differences among these plants but the only named variety I have seen there are tiny mounted Hisui. I would love some good ruby-rooted variety and an srill kofkng myself for failing to grab a “Taiga” off eBay, which gesturing leaf arch that conjured a leaping ballerina. The bean-leafed varieties are very charming but I never see a good one for a reasonable price. I belong to Fukiran Society but they don’t seem to do much. I only have 2 plants, one from that crazy table at Hausermann’s and some purportedly mauve variety from a Facebook purveyor. The prices were right and I like to test grow. But I would like real quality Fukiran.

    This is my Nishidemiyako Vanda. I haven't been growing it for very long but so far seems to like the conditions. I put it center below my grow light where it gets ~400fc (don't know the par or other measurements). Watering is simple as I just soak it in a bucket of water for 5-7minutes, twice a week.

    Not a bad idea - it may in fact be noticed more that way. Folks tend to skip stickys.
