Can anyone help with any information on Kujyakumara 'Peacock'. I can't find any information on the internet. Just received this one blooming, crinkled leaves with yellowing patches.

Bad label.

Plant appears to be a desiccated Neofinetia Kujakumaru. Kujaku means Peacock so I would ditch the clonal reference Peacock unless it is an awarded plant which I doubt.

Firstly, the correct spelling of the name is Kujakumaru as mentioned above. The name is 孔雀丸 in Japanese, and though the first two characters do indeed mean "peacock" I would not translate the name that way because it ignores the last character in the name which is kinda an untranslatable suffix added to certain neo names.

Anyway, Kujakumaru is an interesting variety in that it can grow in two forms.

There's the long leaf form where the plant looks pretty much a standard Neo, with long smooth, narrow leaves, crescent tsuke, and normal flowers.

There's the short leaf form, also called the "true form" which is a bean leaf form that has very short, wide, longitudinally wrinkled leaves, straight or wavy tsuke and round flowers. This is considered the desirable form.

The interesting thing is, a single plant can become either form depending on growing conditions, and there are many cases where both forms can be found in a single clonal clump. It is common to also see the intermediate form where the leaves are not quite as short as the true form but shorter and more wrinkled than the long leaf form.

Yours is currently in the short leaf "true form."

Here are two very good "true form" specimens:


Here's an example of one that shows both forms in one clump:

It's actually not desiccated. It's supposed to look that way in regards to the wrinkles. The characteristic is called Rasha or Rasha-ji

On the other hand, the yellowing patches might not be normal. If only on the bottommost leaves it's probably just normal senescence. If on upper leaves there's something wrong.

Thanks Hakumin for the information. The yellowing is only on the two bottom leaves and the new fan has no yellowing. I enjoy the looks of the wrinkled leaves.
