Default Neofinetia grown from seed and wild found?

Hi everyone,

Neo grown from seed is a lot cheaper than wild found. Anyone know what's the difference between seeded neo and wild one? I got a Hakubotan from a ebay seller, he said it's grown from seed, and the wild found should have ruby roots. So far, I can only see green roots for the whole plant. Maybe that's the difference.

seed grown neos are usually produced by self-crossing a neo. when the grower flasks the seed, they can end up with thousands of nearly identical plants. since the plants don't inherit all of the dna of the parent plant, they can lose good characteristics like ruby roots.

Yep, that's why seed grown Manjyushage is around $100 for one growth but an original division can cost $1000. With the seed grown one, there's no guarantee it will bloom with 3 spurs so you are taking a gamble. If it blooms with 3 spurs, you got a VERY good deal. If it blooms with regular flowers, unfortunately, it would be EXTREMELY overpriced.
