Beautiful plant... far better looking, to me, than the 'normal' form... when i first learned of this plant's existence, in the late 1990s, a plant was really costly and basically impossible to find... now, 2007, these plants are becoming easier to find and much more affordable. And they come in an amazing varieties of variegated patterns, often which vary from leaf to leaf.
