From Florida Hill Nursery, last year I foolishly purchased (well, it was labeled these) dwarf brazilian, goldfinger, and pisang raja. All three grew very strong and were overwintered in the garage, potted. They were root bound in a 6" pot, and barely watered prior to going "dormant." Out of all 3, only the "goldfinger" survived, the rest rotted despite not being watered all winter long/kept in the dark/kept around 50F.

So here's Florida Hill Nursery's "Goldfinger" or FHIA-1. I'm still rolling the dice, as this company is notorious for sending the wrong cultivar, and I can't remember a single post where anyone got what they ordered (although someone may have?). In time, we'll find out if this is the real deal. This plant is very compact and short much like dwarf namwah when it's at this stage....but who knows? photos taken 7/21/16:

red pigments line the petiole canals:

Some pinkish colors in the p-stem:

For what it's worth, the underside of a leaf:
