The article discusses the propagation of the x Neophytum bred in 1957 by Mulford Foster. Hawaiian breeder Lisa Vinzant of Olomana Tropicals nursery in Waimanalo, Oahu, Hawaii made the cross of Neophytum with Orthophytum navioides recently registered as x Neophytum "Supernova" in 2001. Lisa noted that the dominant Orthophytum navioides as a pollen parent has to be crossed with a strongly-marked seed parent and the need for breeders for persistence to see the final fruits of their labour.
