RE: Neo from Hawaii

Glenda, the correct name is Manoa Beauty, although a lot of people get that wrong. It is a Mike Yamamoto hybrid, and like all Neos, blooms in the center of the cup. It needs bright light (but not intense direct sun) to keep the color of the foliage. Keep some water in the cup, but water around the base as well.

Here is a link that might be useful: Neo. Manoa Beauty
