7 !"#$%&'()*!&+%&). Orchid Facts Neofinetia (Neof.) is a monopodial growing genus with three species: falcata, richardsiana and xichangnensis. Neof. falcata is the most common, popular and known of the three among orchid hobbyists, growers and breeders. It was the only member of the Neofinetia genus until The members of this genus are found in China, Korea, Japan and the Ryukyu Islands. These countries of origin indicate that the genus requires intermediate growing conditions. This genus is generally epiphytic, but may also be lithophytic. Neof. falcata is the type species. It was discovered by Carl Thunberg, putting it in the genus Orchis. He described it in his book, Flora Japonica, in The genus was named after the French botanist, Achille Finet ( ). Falcata refers to the scythe-like-shaped leaves. Finet did work on Chinese and Japanese orchids. In 1925, it was moved to the present genus by H. H. Hu. Plants are small, compact and freely branching. The flowers are white to pink borne on short spikes. A plant could have one or two inflorescences. The flower has the characteristic spur, which may vary in length depending on the species or the variety. Leaves also vary in length and color. Regardless of its relatively small stature, Neof. falcata can be impressive specimen plants with innumerable fragrant blooms. Many internet sources recommend mounting these plants on tree fern or cork. Many also added that they enjoy frequent watering when in active growth, but requires good drainage, which explains the cork or tree fern. In nature, this genus grows epiphytically at an angle on small branches of deciduous trees. That means the plants receive strong light during winter and spring. The angle helps drain water from the base of the plants. As early as 1728, Neof. falcata had been described in Japanese literature. There is a long history of its cultivations in Japan starting in the Edo Period (1603 to 1868). The Japanese call this orchid Fu-ran, "The Wind Orchid." or Fukiran which means "Rich and Noble Orchid". Samurai warriors of ancient Japan would go through great lengths to find an exceptional plant, thus a sign of bravery. There was a time when only the elite Samurai class could own this orchid. There was a story I heard from someone or read somewhere that Japanese slaves could earn their freedom and/or be given a house on a tract of land if they could bring a plant of outstanding physical properties. The rich and noble Japanese people of old, according to the Seed Engei webswite, covered their precious Fuki-ran with either gold or silver net to protect them from admirers. The website also added these admirers needed to cover their mouths with kaishi (calligraphy paper) to prevent directly breathing on the esteemed Fuki-ran. The kind of respect they afforded the Fuki-ran was the same respect the Japanese people gave a great sword. This orchid got established in Japanese culture in the Edo Period. However, after the Meiji restoration in 1868, the introduction of Western culture brought in the influx of exotic orchids. The fascination of the Japanese people with the introduced orchid species signified the decline of Fuki-ran s popularity until the 1900's. Neof. falcata has been used to create intergeneric hybrids with other vandaceous orchid genera. The following are some of intergeneric hybrids using Neof. falcata: 7
