INTRODUCTIONS ● NEOFINETIA FALCATA 'BENIMUSOU' 紅無双

CHARACTERISTICS: leaf span - 1.5 in (4 cm); jiku - green; tsuke - wave; ne - brown*

Since it is hard to translate 'Benimusou' 紅無双 name from Japanese, I will be using 'Benimusou' as its name.

There were several cultivars selected out of seedlings of a cross between Neofinetia falcata 'Benikujaku' 紅孔雀 with Neofinetia falcata 'Yodonomatsu' 淀の松 in the late 1980s. Among them was 'Benimusou'. Interesting that even among 'Benimusou' plants there is a variation. So, my 'Benimusou' might look slightly different from yours.

This very amusing miniature FUUKIRAN belongs to a mameba group. The plant I own has boat shaped leaves closely nestled on top of each other, and not too ruff leaf texture. I look forward to seeing this plant grow and reaching its potential.
