Risky Business?...

I bought and planted this Risky Business,from my local nursery. To me,it looks like another Striptease,which I have four of already. It is a young plant. My question is,if any of you have this plant,does it take a while before it gets the white-centered look,or did I get a dud? It may be different when it comes up next year,but if it looks like another Striptease I am going to complain to them about it. Thanks in advance. Phil

It certainly doesn't look like the HL photos of Risky Business. It could just be it's juvenile look. I don't have one, so I'm not much help.

Doesn't looks like mine RB too.. looks more like Gypsy Rose.

Thanks for sharing ^^

RE: Risky Business?...

Sorry, you can see the strip on one of these leaves, so it isn't a real one.

RE: Risky Business?...

I must say that my Risky Business has a wider white margin than the above picture, but not as wide as Phil's. My Risky Business is dark green, with my Gypsy Rose a medium green. But Phil can not water and his climate is much hotter than mine, so the greens are subject to climate. Bernd

RE: Risky Business?...

Chris is right about the white line. I was going to say your plant looks like Gypsy Rose not Risky Business. Mine does not have any white line however. If it's just a fluke and yours does not mature into another Striptease, I'd say you are lucky since Gypsy Rose has a more distinctive look than Risky Business - at least to me.
