Default Can an all Green Ae Ae produce variegated pups?

I know that sometimes an Ae Ae will produce an all Green Pup, and there is a Nursery not too far from that sells green Ae Ae's. My question is could that all green reversion produce variegated pups?

no, once they revert to green they cannot revert back to variegated.

Of course they can, but the chances are very slim. How did the variegation started in the first place? It is a sport mutation of the green type.

Ok, I guess you right Joe, but as Im sure we both know it would not be related to the fact that it came from a variegated plant, it would be a completly random seperate event.

Gabe, I was just being too literal, only for the sake of clarity to others who may take your answer out of context. I know from your first answer that what you really meant is your second answer, and I agree totally.

One other monkey wrench in this situation is weather or not the green plant is from TC. Several folks I have spoken with say that something is lost in the TC process and no variegated plants have been produced to date. All green or all whites that die.
So this would even further reduce the odds of producing a change to variegated.

That's sort of what I figured. Just thought that I would check and make sure. Thanks all.
