Default A common case of clear flat out jealousy..

I received a new duplicate bean leaf tonight following a great auction bid last weekend and when I unwrapped the clone and went to compare it to my original plant,



...there it was ( beaming in all of its glory), a brand new spring spike (my 1st home produced & must have sprung out overnight) on my newly established home orchid (alpha male?).

Jealousy? Nah, just a happy orchid. Congratulations.

Alpha hermaphrodite? The flowers have both parts.

Kibana is not a bean leaf. Bean leafs have short leaves.

I don't know if it is a clone (tissue props or divisions). I think Kibana started as hybrids so it could just as well be seed grown. (Don't know which is more economically advantageous for vendors.)

BTW, the Japanese Neos go by a different set of rules (opposed to AOS) so many hybrids (the colorful ones) are still called Neofinetia falcata.

Go read up at Botany Boy.

It is spike season so...

Nice Kibana Charles, why a second one? I hope you will post pictures when it flowers. It is not a bean leaf though. I believe you have a Kuroshinju? That little bugger is a bean leaf and adorable!

I thought, could definitely be mistaken, that Kibana is a hybrid.

Hahaha, good answer! I can't say that I blame you, especially with yellow flowers.

Yep, Kuroshinju and Tamakonguo are bean leaf. I'm kinda hung up on the beans and really want a Senzai. The larger Neos take so much more space.

This sounds hilarious to somebody who drives a 1-ton diesel pickup.
