A. 'Gympie Gold' going variegated?

Is this what it looks like when a plant starts to go variegated?

It sure looks that way, WL! Whether or not it will maintain it is another story. I don't know this cv, is there already a variegated form of it?

No claim of variegation on fcbs, although one of the parents (gamosepala x caudata v. variegata) is variageted.

It is an unstable variegated hybrid .

It's also not too attractive. I've been tempted to toss it in the trash can on several occasions.

I've kept this Gympie Gold and it rewarded me with a pup from the non-variegated side. Today, I yanked it out of the ground and ripped off the pup, put a fertilizer pellet in the leaf joint on the variegated side and repotted it with the variegated side pointing toward the sun. This is its last chance before I give it away to somebody who appreciates a cold hardy member of the Ortgiesia group.

The project continues...it finally flowered and I crossed it with a bunch of junk but it only liked pollen from other Ortgieseas. I got seeds from the Suenos and Ametista crosses. Today I checked the seeds and found that the Suenos cross was mostly albino and the Ametista was mostly green!
