Neofinetia falcata ‘Ōyashima’ 大八洲

Purchased from Flora Peculia in July 2019. It has Tsume-fukurin 爪覆輪 variegation which is not very common. It is a type of marginal variegation that is only limited to the distal half of the leaf.

Plant doesn’t clump much, since arrival with one mature growth and one baby fan it only started to produce one more baby, so pretty slow growing for me, but the mature growth bloomed.

The flowers start opening creamy green and then fade to white. I was told that if it blooms in darker and colder environment – green on the blooms is more pronounced and stays on longer.

It bloomed last summer in June 2020:
