Thank you for answering, AnonYMouse! I was wondering what that meant. So if you were to see a Neof. with a name of (making this up) Shutenou-shima, that means it is a Shutenou with longitudinal stripes. I have seen some orchids saying Shutenou-no-shima. What would that mean?

(whooee, it's been a while since I've been on on ob...)

Shima, 縞, is longitudinal striping as others have already mentioned, but to be more specific it most often refers to random stripes. If the plant has two symmetrical stripes going down the edges of the leaves, then it's usually called Fukurin, 覆輪.

And as mentioned above, the word shima is often tacked on to striped clones of existing named plants. As for the "no" in shutennou-no-shima, it's just a grammatical particle. they're both the same variety

I'm not sure but I don't think Shutenou-no-shima is correct in this context. I think it reads as Shutenou's island.

の (no) is used as a possessive ('s). "Satomi's father" is "Satomi no otousan".

Other uses of の (that phrase might be the bilingual equivalent to "who's on first") is on/of in this context; book on/of flowers="hana no hon". Also in/at/on a place; mountain in Kyoto="Kyoto no yama".

None of the phrases I used are going to be useful (sort of like "Jane has a dog. The dog is Fido."), just to illustrate in English. My Japanese is almost non-existent, I resorted to a dictionary.

I stand corrected, 緑宝の縞-Ryokuhou no shima.

Talking Neo's give me a headache.

One more.

Nishiki=brocade

Thank you all for the input. Soooo all shima are stripes but not all stripes are shima. Is that what I am getting here? I learn something new every day here!
Thank you again.....Jean

Japanese has a ridiculous number of homophones. Shima can mean stripe, island...four demons...demon of death....ahem. yeah. The "no" isn't what determines which meaning is used, it's usually context or convention.

Of course, there are a few neos that have the word "shima" in them with the meaning of "island". (e.g. Tsukishima, 月島) So, you'll just have to memorize which instance means what

I should also mention, Nishiki, 錦, is also a type of striping that's distinct from Shima and Fukurin. Nishiki is the fine, thin, streaky form of striping.

Nishiki is often categorized as Shima, but while I guess strictly speaking, Fukurin is a type of Shima, it is most often categorized as it's own type of variegation. But yes, you got it right.

I have a Kogane nishiki that is clearly a tiger stripe. Would it be miss-labled? I also have a very small Kara nishiki with NO markings of any kind...too young? will those usually develop later?

Kogane Nishki, 黄金錦, Is supposed to be a tiger stripe. I'd forgotten about that one. The name was probably intended to mean "Gold Brocade" rather than the "nishiki" as a suffix to indicate stripes.

It's the same with Karanishiki, 唐錦, which is supposed to have tiger stripes as well. That one was probably intended to mean "chinese brocade".

Of course there are exceptions to everything....sorry
