Product Description

This is a specimen of a variegated  Shima Fu  with 4  leaves. The tallest is as stated in the description above with a leaf width of 1 3/4 inches.  On our site (And only here, everywhere else it means the same thing) We use Genpei to talk about ducks with striped 50/50 Variegation as opposed to pure green with no stripes and pure white with no stripes. This plant has fairly obviously got a light and dark side. This type of duck has a lower chance of staying a duck than those that have perfect green/white delineation. However I have had them turn into fukerin, stay duck for 20 leaves, or just become gorgeous bright shima fus. Really never had them become a dark plant. Obviously it has 5 leaves right now but I am not counting the cut leaf. It will probably need to be removed sometime in the future. We leave them there until they drop off to give the plant that extra bit of sun power. 

 We observe and treat our imported plants for at least 3 months before offering them to our customers. Chinese plants do not get watered and fertilized the same in China as in the US and it takes a long time for them to acclimate. For this reason alone you are much better off buying from us than direct.

Shima Fu are part of the family of Variegated Clivia. All variegates are effected by light. They belong on the more northern exposed side of your house or in 80% shade and no less. If your plant becomes too dark for your liking move it to a darker place and there is a really good chance it will lighten up. If you want to know more about variegation check the tab on our home page. We have endeavored to explain the major aspects of undertanding and growth of this most interesting section of Clivia.

 You save a lot of shipping just buying from us. The cost of shipping from China is high and Vendors often ask for $25.00-$40.00 for a plant like this-even more! We are shipping this plant for whatever the calculated shipping is for a plant of this size from us to you, and from just North of Boston, MA. not 6800 miles away.
