I love these! They are so tiny and cute with the distinctive curve of the leaves. Mine has not bloomed but maybe next year...if it hasn't croaked yet.

Shannon, that is a great neo and the pot is fantastic with it. Love the pot, the coloring is so pretty.

Thanks guys! I really, really like this one. It is just such a cutie... but then there is the bonus of those super flowers too! I don't see a spike on this one, so maybe next year....

It's so darn cute! I'd love one of these! Have you found nice pot for it yet? I saw your other posts of all your other new babies. It must have been better than x-mas when you received the package

Camille: The Seikai is a very compact grower, super cute! It has a little "something" or other emerging out from between the second set of leaves, on the left. . .but it's super tiny.

Right below it, is a bit of sphagnum, I think. I couldn't remove it with a little soft paint brush, so I left it. LOL

The flowers should be white or light pink and quite contorted!

Now, I need a new pot for it.

I think I see the little "something" you're talking about. I hope for you that it's a spike! The flowers should be interesting to see, if they are contorted!

I hope so too!

Seems like once I see that "nubbin" though, it takes forever for it to emerge and declare itself. . .spike or new growth!

But I sure do enjoy checking everyday to see which is which!
