@hkyfvr isn’t it! 😍 it’s a bit like pixels, kinda square-looking variegation 🤔

@juliesgarden you’re so lucky 😜 they started when it was in the greenhouse and no matter what I’ve used they just cover every stem of every flower 🙈 look so unsightly I’m tempted to cut the whole lot off 😂

@alan1111 they seem to be out in force don’t they! Got them on so many plants I’ve never seen them on before 😐 maybe it didn’t get cold enough to kill them off over winter 🤔

No probs - all done 😉👍🏼 Nice plant by the way, almost reminds me of a climbing Croton!

comment

@richard.spicer.7906 thank you 🙏🏻 and thank you 😛 that’s the one I was trying to remember! The leaves are really like those gold dust crotons 🤩 although when you look closely on these leaves it’s like the variegation is pixelated. It’s very square 😜 I’ll post a foliagefriday photo tomorrow

Ooo sounds strange but intriguing! There is a house plant like that too. Almost reminds me off crocodile skin pattern - maybe we’re even talking about the same plant 😂😂

@richard.spicer.7906 could well be because this is recommended to be a conservatory plant. Variegated foliage lured me in though 😂

@richard.spicer.7906 sorry to be a pain Rich but noticed I misspelled megapotamicum. Any chance you can correct it when you get chance? Thank you 🙏🏻

All done! 🙂 I’ve changed the name of the cultivar slightly too as I think is officially registered as Variegatum rather than Variegata 👍🏼
