Default N Ryouga and N Daisonishiki from Korea

A few months ago I placed an order with Barampung for the above neos. If you are living in the US and interested in placing an order with any plant vendor outside the US, you must read the various warnings included in the posts entitled “A few neos freshly repotted” and “English Translation of Site”.

There are many regulations involved in importing plants to prevent introduction of invasive insect pests into the country and prevention of removal of endangered species from their native environment. If you violate these laws when importing, serious consequences can result including fines, imprisonment, and irreversible damage to our environment.

In general, when placing an order for plants from a foreign vendor, it is your responsibility to assure that all legal requirements are met for your location (whether it be the US or elsewhere) as any violations would subject you to severe penalties.

There was shipment damage to the Ryouga, but the Daisonishikis were unscathed. It is unclear whether the damage was from heat (on the tarmac or in the mail truck delivering my package) or freezing (in an improperly temperature regulated airline storage compartment since at high altitudes it is freezing outside the aircraft).

Below are pictures of the Ryouga from the website, once received showing damage to the leaf tips on one side of the plant, after surgery to prevent spread, and current status showing new leaf emerging indicating to me that the plant will survive, and then a picture focusing on a single leaf to highlight its variegation. The final picture is of the 2 Daisonishikis purchased and potted up approximately 1/2” to 5/8” in leaf spread.


Concerning the Ryouga or Ryoga:

I have wanted this variety ever since I saw it pictured about 13 years ago on SE's 40 page pamphlet and referred to as a “New Star of Fukiran”. One aspect of the variety (and I could be wrong due to highly limited access to pictures of it) is that its leaves tend to cripple. Fortunately the leaves on my plant that were damaged were on the crippled side. Perhaps in its wisdom, the plant realized to sacrifice those to save the plant, or perhaps the crippled leaves were just more vulnerable due to their condition. A few years ago, Satomi peddled a Ryouga basket case where all the leaves were crippled and as the consummate marketer said that if brought back to health, the purchaser would have something valuable. I have seen another picture from SE's auction of a Ryouga with Shima variegation which differed markedly from the pamphlet's enhanced mimizuri variegation. I prefer the variegation on mine to the others but that’s of course just personal.

Concerning the Daisonishiki or Daiso Nishiki:

I probably would have been better off selecting ones with more green to assist the plant in its growth. The selection was limited and some had so much green that it would have resulted in too little variegation.

Glad the plants made it, I'd be extremely nervous waiting for them myself. All accounts I've read neo's are super tough in transport. Poor ryouga the new leaf looks promising. Got a single fan of akebono from Satomi recently and thought it was kinda sad looking when I repotted and revealed too little roots... but lo and behold one root already turned green and is growing and the new leaf it was forming is already extending a couple weeks in... is the ryouga a fast grower to your knowledge? crossing fingers for ya...

Both have amazing variegation. the daisonishikis are super adorable. Likewise hope they grow fast, but the looks of them looks like they may take eons there to develop a multi leaf fan, eh?

Looks like orchiata with tree fern? or is it just reg bark? It think it's amazing you succeed with bark and neo's. Anything vandaceous don't do well for me until they are in a basket or mounted with little or no media, and neo's I just do better in sphag if not mounted.

u bada,

Ryouga has Amami bloodlines so it should be vigorous. I am sure it will survive but take years for it to “balance out” in appearance.

You are perceptive, I am growing the plants in orchiata and tree fern. The first thing I do when receiving plants in sphag is to repot into bark and treefern. I've been growing neos for over 45 years solely in bark and tree fern with no issues. (The plants from Korea were shipped bareroot because of customs, plant inspection regulations.)

As far as the Daisonishikis, they will take forever and because I am a senior, I may never see them reach mature size.

Don't be so sure about that.

That may mean they grow faster than you think... or you'll live to 110.
