This unique in-house cross #22023 (moctezumae x ‘Faulisi’) is new to the market, and has a “starfish” like appearance due to the shape of its leaves and the pinkish coloration. The plant you will receive will be between 1”-1.5” in diameter. The flower is large is large with flatter petals and a bright pink color, reminding us of a clown’s trick flower and thus giving inspiration for the name.
Unlike the reverse cross, the leaves have more of a ‘Faulisi’ presentation being wider with a noticeable indent line down the center. The color is very similar to the reverse, starting out a bright yellow-green that comes from pinguicula mocetzumae, and colors up a nice pink under high light while keeping its “purple pits” indicative of ‘Faulisi’ regardless.
We would consider this to be an intermediate-advanced level plant.
