Baby looks nothing like mama plant?

11 years ago

Hey all

First of all, I am really new to AV's. I am an avid outdoor gardener and have been really successful with orchids and succulents, but this is really a new area for me.

Last fall, after finding success with a couple of rescue plants from the box store clearance rack, I decided to try my hand with some more intersting varieties. I bought a leaf collection and armed with the rooting instructions, went to town. I have been pretty successful with starting the babies (of the 60+ leaves I started I only lost 3) but I was really surprised that a couple of them don't look like the leaf they are growing from.... why are the leaves so withe with light varigation when the parent leaf is seemingly all green?
