Default Re: Misi Luki

Just thought I would join in. I have both a Mysore and a "Misi Luki" bought here on the Big Island of Hawaii. It's odd, because I bought my "Misi Luki" from the same guy I bought my Dwarf Namwah from. Even helped him remove the Namwah pup he sold me, so this "Misi Luki" is also clearly different than the Dwarf Namwah that he grows and I now have. Any guesses at to what it is?

The Misi Luki has a bit of pink on the midrib and and very slight pinkish tinge to the underside of each new leaf, but nothing like the real Mysore.

For comparison are some shots of the actual Mysore I bought from another nearby grower.

Underside of newest leaf

New leaves come out with a bit of pink, which fades.

Compared to the mysore leaf, which is very red.
