Too young yet no booms, first year plant and it was heavily crowded by weeds. Now that its in a huge pot with great soil and will get good light and water it should really grow next year and hopefully flower.

Just keep all greenery cut off the plant...or it will revert back to green..if you get a variegated branch and then some turn green after that..cut all green off up to where the variegated started..

Ok thank you for that advice! In another month it should be out of dormancy and buds opening up so I can see what color the leaves will be.
