I'm tired of looking at my Neo Inca. The thing is dull and boring. Anybody have a good looking Inca or know how to give it some color? Mine has even started to flower and still it's ugly.

When I bought it:

They look better in clumps and/or mixed with other broms for contrast

HDD would you say that there are better plants? If you could "only" have 150 varieties of broms would Inca be one of them?

If you think that looks bad you should see one that was kept indoors under lights all winter. I can't wait to get everything back outside!

Winter I would have 'Inca fire' in that count..I will try to post a picture before I leave

Inca Fire is a completely different plant. I looked at that in FCBS today when checking plain ole Inca. I think I like Inca Fire quite a bit more.


 o
good plant

Its brighter....but Inca has its redeeming qualities as a parent :)

I see that Jason M has used it (Inca x Fireball) to make a bunch of mildly interesting crosses. I've never had a Fireball flower so I won't be doing that cross. I have a Granada, Compacta and Catherine Wilson flowering at the same time so I'll cross those and then give any Inca pups away (I know somebody who has never met a Neo he didn't like) and be rid of it. I just wish I had some Rosy Morn pollen. I like the Cruenta influence.

mildly interesting...isnt the term I would use on those plants LOL

RE: Neo Inca is....

HDD, you may be right. I've used Inca as the pollen parent for 4 genera! Maybe one or two will actually look good.

Hi Guys

To be fair...its dull. Bromadams X looks a lot better!

Cheers

That's not a cross, that's the real thing, but it does look good from the side after a few tough months on a plumaria. It will be many months before any of the crosses are big enough to show color.
