    This is a new acquisition. Pictures of the plant, which I am displaying gives good representation to the plant. But in person it is a very dramatic plant! Why I find this plant desirable? It is a slightly larger plant than "normal" sized Neofinetia. The leaves have a very pleasing curvature. The plant has plenty of growths, or fans. If given plenty of bright indirect light, the leaves will attain a brighter yellow diffused variegation called "tiger stripe" this can be seen on the second picture with the top new leaf. The plant will develop a navy line along the leaf axis as the leaf ages. The base of the plant is green, roots have green tips. Flowers are the normal fragrant white.
