Thanks for sharing this, Franck.

It would seem that the variegated form was trying to revert and the dark green colouring of the type has been lost.

You're right redsquirrel. Indeed, all variegated forms are as a matter of fact a reaction of degeneration (according to strictly genetic point of view.).

Let's have a look of less juvenile plants. Not too bad for sickly runt :wink:
