Neofinetia falcata ‘Senzai’ 千載

Purchased from Flora Peculia in September 2018, one of my first neofinetia purchases. Miniature bean leaf type, slow growing for me. Senzai means “A thousand years”, that’s probably how long it will take to grow it into the specimen that can bloom.

This variety is believed to be hard to bloom and needs many growths to do so.

At some point my plant suffered from some brown patches on the leaves but now it seems that new leaves grow clean.

Being so small it is still not the smallest neo, there is the Kuroshinju 黒真珠 variety that is even smaller, I bought it too at the same time but it didn’t survive my inexperienced care back then…
