Well, color me happy to find an article on variegated plants this morning. Yay! Thank you so much for writing this and putting together so many wonderful pictures. I supposed you had to limit your pictures so that the article wouldn't be an actual book, but I could have sent you pictures of variegated bananas, adeniums, and plumerias that I have;-) Still, your article is terrific and very informative. We were just talking about variegated plants over at this thread, and I posted some pictures just the other day:

I'm delighted to learn that my variegated Caroyta mitis will do okay outside in full sun. May I ask you to look at the picture below and let me know if I can plant this one outside or whether I should wait until it gets a little bigger?

Also, to tap into two areas of your expertise that overlap, my coonhound keeps eating my Pleioblastus fortunei Dwarf Whitestripe Bamboo. Could that be bad for him? If it is, I'll get rid of it.

Thanks again for sharing your vast knowledge and love for a variety of plants. You are such an asset to this community.

Caryota mitis is OK in full sun in Hawaii.. not sure about in a harsher climate... great plant though!

Thanks, Geoff. I'll keep in inside then for a while:-) Thanks for the great links that you provided at the end of your article. I've been perusing the palm and cycad one, and I can't believe the beauties there. I agree with you about the future of variegated plants. I think they'll continue to fascinate for a long time to come.
