Neofinetia falcata Murasakitaishi (“Against Purple”) is a look-alike to Shutennou (which is pictured), the most popular pink-blooming variety of fukiran. Flowers are characterized by a dark pink peduncle and nectary spur with a pink blush on the flowers. Leaves of Murasakitaishi are a bit smaller than standard size and make lovely clumps of happiness. Some of the difference is due to differences in culture.
As with many of the colored flower varieties, Murasakitaishi is hard to divide. Roots tend to develop well on the mother growth and the babies are slow to develop their own roots. For the sake of the plants, I’m selling these in the beautiful bunches that they are, so they are PRICED PER PLANT. Each plant has at least three mature growths (often more: see the additional photos for an idea of size).
