New hybrid of ours that is now gleaming in the spring sun.
We made it in 2010 so been slow to grow but now looks promising. The only one in the grex to show the striation + Bitzer marking / red colour. Remainder of the grex has been binned.
This will be a medium sized plant as measures more than 200mm high.
Neo, 'Bitzer' x 'Exotica Electric Red'

Hi everyone.

John - Where do you think the striation comes from, is the Neo. 'Exotica Electric Red' a radial red? I've looked on the B.C.R. but can only find an 'Exotica Sassy Red’. Do you have a picture?

Those 'Gold Fever' like markings are nice and one of my favourite colour combinations, even without the faint striation.

All the best, Nev.

Hi Nev, yes for some reason Andrew Steens never registered 'Exotica Electric Red'. its a striated neo from seed he got as unknown from Brazil. Was interested in creating a Mini with the combo markings, unfortunately its taken on the size of Exotica Electric red. Would have to recross again with lilliputiana to get size down. Will go on a plant hunt in our garden to get a image, its out there somewhere.

Hi everyone.

John I like this hybrid better than the previous one, but then I've always had a soft spot for those wonderful golden colours.

What fascinates me more than either though, is the rare looking plant with the fine black coloured recurved foliage and the white crown like foliage on top; what coloured flowers does it have? Does it have Tillandsia usneoides in the cross? That's maybe where the fine foliage comes from.

All the best, Nev.

Clever Nev!, she does need a hair cut, eyes are very obscured. We are holding off on the trim as she + us head to the local shopping center tomorrow to collect money for charity. Artheritis appeal. We are Members of the local Lions club. So using her cute look to attract the donations.

Heres the last of these for a bit

Story here is the above fell out of this community pot so it self selected itself. To me it actually seems to be the best prospect ?, others look very lanky maybe over fertilized.
