Default Suisei?

As a chance, ordered this variety from Satomi, and all she sent as a description was this:

彗星 - 富貴蘭讃歌

There’s only one other image I saw of it, probably of a plant she was selling in the past. Looks like a lighter green bean leaf.

A post on here noted at on thread talking about neos with unusual flowers, with a dead link to a photo of flowers, can’t really say how these flowers are unusual.

A friend translated the above link and she said to paraphrase- bean leaf, green leaf, green axis, green root, strange flowers (without description of how they’re strange)

For kicks I tried to find translation and this is what I found:

Japanese-English translation :: suisei :: Dictionary

How this plant can reflect of of those translations is any ones guess. If at all correct that is.

The flowers are variably mutable. That link that satomi sent shows a good range of what’s possible.

Bean leaf means short wide leaves. Green leaves means no variegation, green axis means green stem with no red or brown pigmentation, green root means the active root tips are green with no red or brown pigmentation.

The name itself, 彗星, Suisei, refers to a comet.

It’s a fun variety, have fun with it!

Thanks Hakumin, appreciate.

Yeah I figured it's a bean leaf. The other picture I found suggested so. I'd attach it but it's a such a crappy pic from a few pinterest boards. I, like pattywack, love the mini's, and therefore love the bean leaf's. So was happy to see that confirmed.

I also am aware of the other noted qualities of neos, and green axis and green root I find appealing. I did think there might be a slight variegation, but no variegation is fine particularly as the green on these leaves appear to be lighter than most other forms, yet not gold/yellow on the torafu varieties. different in a subtle way. Perhaps may vary in different lighting, but we'll see.

Don't think it mentioned tsuke? My friend would have mentioned, she's versed in plants although she has moved to other hobbies as of late. Looks straight line or crescent most likely.

But the flowers, yes I can see "comets". lovely. I actually love now what I wasn't sure I was seeing, the "mutability" in the flowers, variation of each flower along a single spike both in form and alignment to the other. The arrangement is very flowing.

I look forward to receiving this one. Thanks for your help, hakumin.
