Cultivar Origin:

My long-term plant friend, Kaitlyn, had given me a (nonvariegated) P. pastazanum chunk (confirmed ID). One of the offshoots came out with some slight sport; however, with each new leaf, stable variegated tissue became more prevalent. Which I have been able to successfully propagate.

Name Origin:

I had a support dog, a giant majestic german shepherd that I had named Fen. A couple of months ago there was an incident and he is no longer with me. He's the only reason I'm still here working in what I love... my greenhouse! He was the only one that was ever there for me, and as my first cultivar submission after many, many years of growing, I'd like to name this cultivar after him in remembrance.

Growth Habit:

Terrestrial/crawling

Leaf Blade:

Wrinkly heart-shaped, like regular form pastazanum

Bloom and Fruit:

N/A

Distinguishing Characteristics:

Leaves come in very pale which fades over time, to reveal the variegated tissue and pattern. Both specimens exhibit not just albo variegated tissue, but also the so-called "mint" variegation, along with green speckling.
