Which one would she be?
It's 'Queen'. The difference is that 'Queen' has the variegation on the outer edge of the leaves and 'Princess' leaves are variegated in the center with a green rim.

Yep . . . that's right. You've got a 'Queen' there. ;)
I see. Thanks ladies!
Question, should I remove the all-white leaves?
Only if you don't like them. ;) They're not going to hurt, anything, as far as I remember. They just don't do much . . . Mine usually die (the all-white leaves) after a while. No harm to the rest of the plant.
I think they're pretty, and leave them until they disappear on their own. ;)
I only cut them off if the plant obviosly stops growing or slows down considerably. Carolyn is right - they often die back themselves at some point. I'd leave them on and enjoy them until you see a reason to take them off.
My Crimson Queen hasn't bloomed this year, because I moved her to a north-facing window. The west-facing garden window she used to be in (and she bloomed well) made her leaves fade and sometimes burn on the edges, so I moved her away. Now the leaves are beautiful. Got those nice white leaves and a long spur, but no blooms yet.
OK, another question. My Carnosa KQ is really thick, what I mean the stems are really thick, the leaves are thick and the vines she puts out are really thick, if she grows them at all. I have cut her back to sell cuttings in the past.
I've seen pics of other KQ's and they aren't as thick as the one I have. Could it be just an individual plant's characteristic or something?
Mine is unilaterally thick likes yours, too, and I have likewise wondered about this. We discussed it in a different thread somewhere this year and I think I remember several people saying that their plants grow both thick and thin leaves.
I personally think that there are differing strains out there, although it is possible that cultural conditions produce different growth, or that all the KQs are variable and we just haven't seen thin leaves on our plants yet.
