Neofinetia falcata ‘Tamakongo’
Tamakongou is a classic must-have bean leaf for any Neofinetia collector it is one of the most popular varieties of fukiran and probably the most popular bean leaf.
It grows quickly forming dense clumps of compact, dark green fans.
Flowers are white, star-shaped, up-turned, and short-spurred; they smell just as good as “regular” flowers.
Very well suited for windowsill growing, but can be mounted too of course. Our Neofinetia’s are supplied bare root or in our bark mixture.
The cultivation of Fukiran has a long history dating back more than 400 years ago and originating in Japan. Over this time many unique variants of Furan have been cultivated, some worth the £100,000’s!!
There are 100’s variations of Neofinetia falcata. Each variety has a variations in flower shape, leaf shape & even texture, variegation, stem, tsuke (connection between stem & leaf), roots and root colour.
Flowers are highly fragrant and have a sweet smell often in the morning or evening, the intoxicating fragrance is like that of Citrus or Honeysuckle blossom. Flowering season is normally in Summer (June to July), the common colour form is white but there are varieties like red, green, pink and yellow.
Typically Neofinetia like a shady but airy place to grow, in the UK we give full light during the cooler months with a minimum temperature of 10c, they can tolerate a lower temperature down to 5c but during this cooler season they must remain on the dry side. In Summer like all orchids we provide shading to avoid excessive temperature and allow fresh air to flow through our orchid house.
