Hi everyone,

Can anyone help me with the ID of this Neo? It is about 40cm across and is currently growing beneath 70% shade cloth.

When grown under higher light conditions it takes on more of a deep pinkish light burgundy colour. (Sorry I don't have a pic under those conditions and that's the best way I can descibe it.)

It has pretty tough leaves and does stand up to a bit of knocking around. I don't remember what colour the flowers are (white I think) but I will confirm when it flowers.

All the best, Nev.

It looks a bit like French's Cruenta, Nev, or possibly one of its hybrids.
