Default This is supposed to be namwah dam, but it is variegated

I bought this pup as namwah dam, but the strange thing is that it is variegated.
I have my doubt I got a variegated version of namwah dam, that is already a rare variety on its own, so any guess what is it?
The seller also has on sale:
Musa Florida, Praying Hands variegated, Tanee variegated, Acuminata varigated.

Any guess?

I'm no expert but it doesn't look like the variegated namwa plants that I have seen. They have clearly visible white/creamy areas on the leaves. Maybe its my computer resoltion but your plant looks like its just slightly deficient in nitrogen and potassium to me. The leaves on my namwas are green to dark blue green.

Strange, they have been heavily fertilized.
I will try another fertilizer which has more potassium.

The seller also says its nutrient deficit. I will try some foliar spray and see.

If the pstem has some red white green vertical striations it could well be a variegated plant.


Is namwah dam the correct name.?
Is the seller local or in Thailand?
