The Trifasciata "compact" = "Futura" = "Future" Cultivars

Here's a list of the compact trifasciata cultivars. Here "compact" = "Futura" = "Future". I suppose everyone knows that E. B. Chahinian decided to recify the Latin names on many of these cultivars, but there are a few old names that are apparently grandfathered, so be prepared to make changes to this list if you save it.
`Black Futura' Periclinal GGG Descends from Bantel's Sensation
'Bogor' Periclinal GWG White, no yellow
`Eve' Periclinal GGG leaf pattern opp of Whitney
'Future' (futura) Periclinal WGG
'Future Gilt Edge' Periclinal WGG
'Future Gold Periclinal WWG Formerly 'Futura Aura'
'Future Hendrika' Periclinal WWG
'Future Simplex' Periclinal WGG tetraploide margins
'Future Striolated' Periclinal WGW
'Future Variegated' Mericlinal GWG

'Gold Flame' Mericlinal WWG tetraploide entire plant
'Green Lace' Mericlinal GWG
'Henny's Gold' Periclinal GWG

Thanks for Your very useful list (just copied in my archives!). One doubt : I have some cv that always reproduce “true” from leaf cuttings , those are : hahnii ‘jade’, trif.’Grey Lady’, trif ‘Slimmerette’, futura ‘Midnight’ (the one without yellow margin, I mean). More : some cv , not variegated , but of different growth or leaf size (i.e. ‘Okeechobee’, ‘hahnii’) do the same. Shouldn’t they all turn back to the ancestral form? Are they ‘true’ chimeras? Or is there any chromosomic defect ?

RE: The Trifasciata "compact" = "Futura" = "Future" Cultivars

Hi Roberto. Thanks for the leaf info. I don't know why some chimera leaf cuttings revert or why the pups of some revert. Nor have I started to collect that data. These would make two excellent additional columns to the lists I have posted. As you noted my lists only address leaf variegation, although I've included a little info on parentage and polyploidy.
I've never seen a good explanation of why these trifasciata cultivars differ in leaf length.
