it looks so curious! i didn't know they don't live long..
I wasn't very clear. It's not that the plants don't live long; it's just that the variegation usually disappears with the new set of leaves. It's the variegation that tends to be short lived. At least, according to some resources I've read.
oh i see! thanks! I misunderstood..i didn't know about that either, very interesting, thankssince it's been like this through two growth seasons, maybe it's 'permanent' in this case? maybe it's worth cultivation :)
We don't know that that's fact and have no particular experience to support it. We're certainly hoping it's permanent. We'll grow it on through this next growth season and see what happens.
What did happen to tis plant?
It's still hanging in there and still variegated, but not quite as much so. I'll post a new pic soon.
