Talking Super Dwarf Nam Wa Updates

That was fast

The short fat little gal squeezed out a pup overnight.

What makes this particular Variegated Dwarf Namwa mama special and that skinny little Variegated Dwarf Namwa pup below skinny is that there is a sibling pup that's the same height but is 3.1 times as fat with many more leaves.

So far it appears to be some type of Variegated Super Dwarf Namwa mutation and we should know in a few months if the trait is passed along to it's pups.

Side by side comparison of two Variegated Dwarf Namwa that are both the same height.




A beautiful jumbo brick... Variegated Florida, planted over a dozen of these yesterday.



Variegated Namwa and Florida are prolific puppers and prices should soon be in the $10 to $15 range.
