Neofinetia falcata ‘Shutennou’

A very popular variety of the japanese Neofinetia (Vanda) falcata or Fuukiran (風蘭) orchid. It is a showy variety with pronounced magenta color on the spurs, stems, tips of the petals, and the flower spike itself. The magenta coloring can also be present on the leaves and this particular plant displays ruby roots as well. Wonderful sweet fragrance at night. It is potted in a sphagnum moss mount in the traditional japanese style.
