We have used our newly made emarginata ‘Taquito’ in this hybrid. ‘Taquito’ was named for its leaves with rolled margins that look like little tacos. This cross also has rolled leaf margins and when grown in low light, the leaves can curl up in little green tubes. Like all emarginata crosses, it’s almost constantly in bloom with little lavender, pink flower.
