Default New Unnamed Neo.

Aloha All,

I wanted to share this new plant, it's unnamed so there are no expectations of what it's "supposed" to do or look like. I'm not entirely sure how to treat it, since it seems to have a few characteristics to be mindful of.

Overall it looks similar to Misukage, but the leaves are a bit lighter in color and (at least so far) the stripes seem somewhat less frequent. One cool thing is that the leaf margins are a bit darker and seem to deepen as the leaf matures, eventually forming distinct edges. The navy stripes are distinctive from some angles, but then almost disappear when viewed from other angles.

Each of these characteristics has a vague or wishy washy quality, which all combined I find pretty interesting. These subtle qualities also made it hard to get pictures that give an accurate impression of the plant.

I hope y'all enjoy, and please share Neos from your collection that you particularly like staring at.

“The navy stripes are distinctive from some angles, but then almost disappear when viewed from other angles.”

I can really understand why you enjoy staring at this plant. It is very attractive. I have a question as to the use of the word “navy” wrt the stripes? What does that mean? Satomi often uses it and I have absolutely no idea what she is talking about.

Maybe it’s from Satomi that I’ve picked it up, so this is just how I interpreted the term and I could be incorrect. I think of “navy” as being a darker bluish green, like the stripes in misukage.

"Navy" comes from the word Kon 紺, which is the name for a color that is closest to what English speakers would call Navy Blue.

When it comes to neos however the meaning is stretched a little and the word is commonly used to describe dark green especially when it borders on bluish, both in solid dark green leaves as well as dark or darker green stripes in variegation.

In this way, green on green stripes can sometimes be called Kon-Shima 紺縞, and nakafu variegation with consistent dark green margins is sometimes referred to as Kon-Fukurin 紺覆輪. The darkness of the green of on a leaf is referred to as Kon-sei 紺性 which could be translated as "navy-blueness"
