Neofinetia falcata is distributed in Japan and Korean Peninsula. In Japan, Neofinetia falcata is known as "Samurai Orchids". It grows naturally in warm areas near the coast of west Kanto. It is a epiphytic species that grows by attaching roots to branches of trees.
Neofinetia falcata has a couple of different varieties, and the one Bloomify selected is called "Hisui", or Jade in translation, due to its rare and mysterious light green blooms.
It is a strong and easy-to-grow plant, but there are some points that you should be aware of and take care of. From spring to fall, you can place your Hisui outdoors in sunny and airy weather. But remember to avoid direct sunlight in summer and try to grow in a semi-shaded area as the leaves may burn and growth may decline if exposed to strong direct sunlight.
Fertilizers should be given 2 to 3 times a month during the growth period from spring to fall. Diluted liquid fertilizer about 2000 times is recommended. Under proper care, Hisui could produce up to 10 flowers in summer!
Hisui withstands low temperatures well in winter season, but it's safer to bring it indoors in winter as plant may wither due to frost or freezing. Keep temperature above 45 ºF.
Add this highly treasured Hisui makes a wonderful addition to your orchid world!
