Neofinetia falcata 'Kinkousei' 金光星 displayed in a vintage pot from Syungado kiln 春雅堂
with dragon carving.
'Kinkousei' 金光星 or "Golden Constellation Light" is the name of this unique FUUKIRAN. When the plant is held against the light over dark background, the star-like pattern appears on its leaves, otherwise not clearly notable, as if the orchid has watermarks. It has torafu or tiger type variegation.
'Kinkousei' stays compact and produces a beautiful display of evenly fanned and spread narrow pointy leaves. This form is quite amusing and admired for its uncommon variegated foliage and a nice display. It produces white flowers, although, I have yet to see my 'Kinkousei' blooming.
