INTRODUCTIONS ● NEOFINETIA FALCATA 'KUROSHINJU' 黒真珠

CHARACTERISTICS: leaf span - 1-1.5 in (2.5-4 cm); jiku - brown; tsuke - crescent moon; ne - brown*

'Kuroshinju' 黒真珠 or "Black Pearl" is the name of this one of the smallest of FUUKIRAN discovered in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan. With its short succulent leaves it belongs to a mameba or bean-leaf group. Although, it might be among one of the most amusing FUUKIRAN for its size and shape, 'Kuroshinju' produces showy flowers, that are smaller than normal, fleshy and upright oriented, a miniature all around!
