I guess I'd better take some pics of the 7 I picked up at SEPOS.

It is a beautiful Fugaku. Quay San posted pictures of it on his Fukiran collection thread. I wonder what makes your Fugaku a Hou? Is it the extreme lack of green?

Acquiring Neofinetias Via EBay
Default Neo's. and it's hybrids - Buying On Ebay

For those fans of Neofinetia falcata and its hybrids, I wanted to let you know I purchased a Luicentrum Red Seagull X Neofinetia falcata on EBay about a month ago. I've had very good overall success with my buys from that site (individual sellers/growers tend to back their products up and will refund if you get a bad shipment). When watering yesterday, I noticed this on the hybrid I mentioned I just bought (see photo). I thought that was very encouraging considering the short time I've had it. I find that those particular hybrids do well on Louisiana hardwoods. For those who are not sure about what they'll get on eBay, I encourage them to try it (of course, check the sellers feedback/ask ANY questions you might have, no matter how silly you think they might be - and I asked plenty of silly ones, believe me!)

The SEPOS Fugaku acquired by Quay is a very exceptional standard Fugaku (富嶽), assuming it is labeled correctly, but there are similarities between its variegation and the Fugaku-Hou (富嶽宝) from ebay. Of course we know there's a lot of variance between individual Fugaku generally. The one I bought a year ago has very subdued variegation.

The description for the ebay Fugaku-Hou:
Quote:
This variety came out from seedling of FUGAKU and produce spread stripe, Variegation will be very similar to FUGAKU.But FUGAKU-HOU has more stripes and more curvy leaf shape than regular FUGAKU. It's so beautiful!!!

Fugaku has spread striped variegation called Chiri-fu*. It gives us soft image because this stripe looks vaguer than normal stripe. Wide-Hime-ba* is very appreciable to see. *chiri-fu (spread stripe pattern) * Hime-ba ( Curvy leaf shape)
Looking at the kanji, the suffix 宝 (treasure; wealth; valuables) seems almost redundant to the 富(wealth; enrich; abundant).

嶽 is peak and 富嶽 (fugaku) is listed as an alternative name for Mt. Fuji.

It looks like either new root or new growth. Or both.

How won the Fugaku-Hou? Each time I entered my bid the amount quickly jumped before I hit send! It is a beautiful plant.

Such an interesting thread and great pictures of beautiful and unusual Neo. varieties. I must say I am getting quite an education reading this thread and the FB group. So many lovely varieties to choose from.

You were probably bumping up against automatic bidding toward my max bid. Usually, I don't bid at all until the last 4 to 6 seconds and enter a ridiculously high max bid with no intention of actually seeing the bidding approach my max. By bidding as late as possible I avoid stirring up interest. Last night I broke with that pattern and bid with over a minute still remaining.

New World Orchids was at the MOS show in Madison Hts this past weekend, Matt. Too bad you weren't there -- you could have begun rebuilding your neo collection.

Pictures to follow when I get another round tuit.

Tamazuru
Sekirei
Kokyu
Homeiden
Nishidemiyako
Fuji Nishiki
Gojo Fukurin

On a darker note, the Homeiden and Nishidemiyako are replacements for the ones I roasted in the unfortunate space heater incident of last month.

Looking forward to my 2 latest ebay plants arriving later today.
