Clivia miniata Fukurin Akebono
30th March 2008
I got this small plant last year from China, and if it seems a little world weary, it is because it carries a lot of weight on its barely green shoulders.
The "Akebono" or "Light of Buddha" variegation produces broad lateral bands of creamy white across the leaves. The "Fukurin" variegation produces
green and white linear stripes along the leaves. This plant has both types of variegation, and it hasn't got much green to photosynthesise with!
