Couldn't get pictures of the flowers while they were opening cause I wasn't home. Maybe I'll catch the last bud but I don't know because the third bud opened in a matter of hours.

John - You we're right I do so luuuuuvvv this one. I haven't detected a scent yet. But I will take a wiff before I go off to bed.

Anyone know about how long flowers on a neo last?

Looks good Marco!
My Neo flowers usually last a few (3-4) weeks.

These are fragrant at night Marco. After the sun goes down, they should get nice and strong. I think they smell like coconut macaroons.

Thanks everyone

Ron - It's been in s/h for about 2 months, ever since I got it.


John - I took a wiff of it just now. It has a slight fragrance. Jon hit it on the head when I asked him what it smells like. The candy sticks for fun dip. :drool:

Who would have guessed you'd have 4 flowers :rollhappy:
Looks great Marco! That's got to be one of my favorite scents of any orchid. Wish my spike would hurry the heck up.

When paphs and phrags die, only neos will be left :D (with the exception of Phrag. Jason Fischer).

Neo flowers usually look great for the first 7 to 14 days, then they start to slowly fade away.

You'll get good fragrance in about 2 to 3 more days, and it will be most potent and dusk and dawn. However, most neos are fragrant all day long to some extent.

What an off-season for a neo to bloom!

This reminds me that I have to start repotting and dividing some of mine!

Marco, remind me again what kind of long petal multi-flowered Paph that is..:poke: No seriously, that's nice. I love fragrant orchids; unfortunately I have some Plueros w/ flowers that smell nasty. Thats nature.

I had one Neo in my collection and love it. I have added three more this year and can't wait for them to bloom. I did my first Neo cross this year and it took. Now waiting for the pods to mature.

Ron did you cross a neo with another neo or a totally different species? Sorry, I don't know what it's called when you cross into different species

Ok here's a more recent picture. Some of you may be getting sick of it but oh I so love it. Even if it is a standard white :D

Poor lighting on this one
