The Henglan clivias were created by crossing the short-leaved monk's clivia with the Daruma from Japan. They are basically mini Darumas. In the early years, these plants were only available at extremely high prices. In the meantime, the appreciation in China has changed to the effect that only plants without wrinkled leaves are desired in order to achieve a good overall quality. The plants are still expensive today, but prices have fallen considerably, especially for plants with wrinkled leaves.

Sparrows can also be described as mini-Darumas, although they are said to have originated as mutations of normal Chinese clivias. These plants were also traded at very high prices in the early years. Furthermore, the statements made about the Henglan also apply here.


An obvious difference between the plants is visible to everyone. The Henglan has round leaf ends while the Sparrow has pointed leaf ends - hence the name (sparrow's beak). What both plants have in common is their sensitivity to cool temperatures.

Today, the values have changed to the effect that the unconditional dwarfism is no longer in the foreground. The Henglan and also the Sparrow are primarily used as pollen donors for colourful-leaved plants.
