@kaporyash It’s one of very few that isn’t in my registry apparently, sorry it took so long. Looking at the purchase dates of my other plants, I found that it would have been early-mid March of this year when I got it. It’s grown so much, loved that summer sun haha 😎

I’ve just never seen it spelled monstruosa, or heard of that spelling. I have always seen the spelling “monstrose” however both do seem to be used. Gotta love it when there’s 8 ways to say 1 thing haha! And as for the variegated, I know its the latin name :P I was meaning that it isn’t in the main name, it just says “Joseph’s Coat” rather than “Variegated Joseph’s Coat” Sorry, I did phrase that kinda weirdly. @cyndi

Oookies, getting some major “I’m loosing my patience” vibes from you here @cyndi and that’s not what I’m out to do, so I’m just gonna back off. Was just trying to point out that on gardentags, most common names have variegated added if it’s a variegated form, to differentiate from their non-variegated forms. Such as non-variegated Joseph’s Coat and variegated Joseph’s Coat, as both exist.

@leno Indeed, it simply seems that there are two spellings: monstrose, and monstruosa. Language is beautiful isn’t it? 😂

No kidding @leno at school as a little kid I used the UK spelling of color, and always got yelled at for misspelling it, only to find out in my late teens that it was a perfectly valid, albeit of a different locale, spelling of the word! 🤣

@heelerpup my daughter is in college just now and American spellings are acceptable now, not the case when I was in school🤣
