Here are some of mine, mostly varieties of barbata; in the middle (and perhaps the nicest) is hookerae. Anyone able to identify more?:p

photoupload

Is there another hookerae or is it curtisii?
The one with just part of one leaf showing on the top and slight to the left and partially covered by three different leaves?
It has very bright background with very sharp dark green makings.
That is my favorite, although majority of them are gorgeous! :)

What's that small yellow plant near the middle right?
Is it natural or dying??

Okay. What about hybrids at the bottom and middle?

Photo%20Mar%2018%2C%207%2042%2019%20AM.jpg

I knew three of them had delenatii album right away.
Mine are very micranthum like in their pattern.

Is there leucochilum or niveum on the right and left ends?

I think I see micranthum leaves (2 pots)??

What is on the upper right corner? very checker marked leaves?

By the way, what light are they under and how far the distance between the plants and the light?
You might have talked about this before, but I forgot.

Oh, wow~
I wanted to buy a flask of anitum x delenatii dunkel, but did not manage to order in time. Oh, well...
It could be amazing!

I thought my HK had leaves that are narrower than others, but yours are quite narrow.
The pattern sort of told me HK, but the narrow leaves made me unsure. :p

violascens leaves are very pretty!

All I got are leaves! You didn't specify the genera :poke:

Grow area - 05 - 03.20.16 by Marco, on Flickr

Grow area - 04 - 03.20.16 by Marco, on Flickr

Now, who can name all those varieties?!!! :poke:

Nice neo collection!
At first, I thought 'wow the light is very good, and how do they all grow straight up without leaning toward the window?' but then I noticed they are not only sitting on by the window but also under light set up of some sort??

What light are they under?
What exposure is the window?

I'm going to place all my neo and neo hybrids on my new kitchen and bathroom windows.
My windows are going to be all south. I will install shear curtain, of course.
So excited!!!!

Not sure about adding extra light, but I really do not like how my big neos lean towards the light. :(

Happy - Thanks. Yes they are supplemented by 2 T5 lights and are sitting in an east facing window. Only downside is that there's a big tree blocking the sun. I have the lights on for 12hrs a day.

IMHO I think a southern exposure should be fine without supplement.

Yes, south window does not need extra light.
I just wish my plants grew straight up, but that is nearly impossible on the windowsill.

I plan on having a shelving unit with lights.
I might find put some neos there, not sure.
For now, I think I will place neos in the kitchen and bathroom windows, but maybe switch them around, but definitely those two places during the winter I think.

How old are your oldest ones?
How cold is your windowsill in the winter?
Do they all bloom like they should? I mean the leaves are more of the focus on these orchids, but I'm just trying to see their long term health.

I am yet to see how my largest clump will perform (flowering wise) this summer.
It only had one spike last summer. The year before, it had a bunch of them!
It suffered some trauma, so will see if that was the cause. This year's performance should tell me what and why.

Now I feel like I'm hijacking, but we have to make the best out of all threads, right? :p
