INTRODUCTIONS ● NEOFINETIA FALCATA 'HISUI' 翡翠

CHARACTERISTICS: leaf span - 5-6 in (13-15 cm); jiku - brown; tsuke - crescent moon; ne - brown*

'Hisui' 翡翠 literally means "Jade" in reference to the color of its flowers. Green is a rare color among FUUKIRAN, which made this form extremely popular since its discovery in 1980's on the island of Shikoku, the smallest of the four main islands of Japan. 'Hisui' is primarily regarded as a flower form, although its elegant, lightly arching leaves make a nice display in off blooming time.
