The new leaves come in so fuzzy. Btw this is the same plant with the all white leaves. Weird #hoyakrimsonqueen

May be a genetic mutation?

It is allot of times they say the white leaves die off that's why they are bad but honestly these are fine and I have a regular stand @charlotte

Can u see the tiny new leaves they just keep coming in white but surprisingly they aren't dying off so not sure if I should cut them off. Or maybe cut off all the green and propagate and leave the white and see what happens. Idk

@heatherdirtyhands what is the goal? Make more? I'd just let it be, they are so gorgeous. My whites don't die off although I heard they do. I've only lost 1 in over a year.

The goal would be to have a non suicidal plant lol so it can get chlorophyll but it seems to be doing ok really @leafylife

@heatherdirtyhands does the rest of the plant have green leaves? I'll post an updated one of mine, lots of white, haven't lost any leaves... loosing one near the base, but it's been on there for a couple years

I had to remove Iike half of the plant because it just kept shriveling but the remaining plant is finally growing and I am so excited #hoyakrimsonqueen

@leafygreen so this came apart from my plant when I was repotting it. It has some roots but isnt looking so great now that its in its own pot. It's a little wrinkly so I thought watering it would help (that's how u tell they need watered) but its still looking the same. I'm guessing the roots aren't very good so just see how it goes. If it dies its ok. Mine grows super slow and has never flowered. I hope it will soon tho. #hoyakrimsonqueen
