Tim, that is a gorgeous plant! And a wonderful pot! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!

Thanks so much for starting a thead for this one and for providing all that information! I especially like to read how other people grow their Neos. I would like to try mine outside next year - but I would have to be certain that they are safe from slugs and snails. The ones we have here could devastate a plant in one night!!

Wow, Tim! You got this one in fast! Thanks for taking the time to put an entry in. If I find out the english translation of the name, I'll let you know.

Tim, I did finally remember the 'story' behind this name...

It translates to something like Korean dagger or sword or something like that (because of the sharp pointy leaves). In the past there have been conflicts between the Japanese and Koreans, and there is a lot of 'history' there.

The name Chosensetsu has now been changed, I believe, to Yoroidoushi - which is a Japanese dagger and translates to: "passing through an armor".

Thank you all! and I would love to learn more about the history behind these names. I bought 3 other Japanese pots but I dont have any thing small enough to put in them.....these are very small pots... kinda like little clay thimbles.

LOL! You just need to buy some miniature Neos!! Problem solved.


Not that that wasn't a serious suggestion, I do have a couple of things that are in those tiny little 'thimble' pots - one is the little miniature, miniature Sedirea. I'll try to get some photos of mine when I get home from work today.

I've seen that little micro mini sedirea! My work mate, Diane, got one from New World Orchids last week. . .it's ADORABLE!

I just went and measured the leaf span. Both leaves come in under 1-1/4"!

I already have this one on my must have list. It's called Seigyokumaru. I think it was around $40.

Anyway, if you decide to spring for it, it's a winnah!

I have a Seigyokumaru I bought a few months ago and it seems to appreciate the cooler temps more also. There's even a Shima Seigyokumaru which is variegated. Had to pass that one up last time I was at OL due to the "living in a cardboard box" threat.
