Default A few variegated plants

Aloha All. I thought I would share a few variegated plants of mine. One in particular is almost all white. I know over the years I have read that many all white AeAe pups die off. Has anyone had luck with plants with this much white? Thanks!

In the Hawaiian banana book (Kepler and Rust), there's a picture of an all white A'ea'e that is fruiting. It was left attached to the mother plant.

Congrats on getting your plants established in their new home.

Those are some great looking plants! One of my A'ea'es (with 10 keikis!) has one like yours. It has some variegation on one side of each leaf while the other side is all white, and it's not the same side each leaf. I'm planning to keep it growing since it's only in half day sun and winter is coming so it's less likely to burn.

Aloha Brent,

I trust all is well. Hows the AeAe doing you got from me? Yes, That is a huge Bismarkia. I have several. They are great looking palms. Only one problem, the wasps and hornets love making the underside of the leaves their home!

Very nice Rob! Those are great pictures. My AeAe's in our now rental in Santa Barbara never got that much white!

Great thread! I like variegated bananas.
I had several albini lemon sprouts, Citrus ichiganensis, and they all died

Great looking plants Andrew. I would love to get a variegated banana.
Excessively white plants always struggle if separated from the mother plant. The same goes for Bromeliads. I have a very white Howea palm which is struggling to grow not having enough chlorophyll (in the green parts)to do photosyntheses with.

Thanks for the reply. I love anything variegated. This banana has routinely pushed out lots of white but now its mostly white. We will see what happens. I grow over 240 varieties of bromeliads. The whites burn real easy and I keep them in the shade. I also have lots of different variegated clivias. The variegation is mostly shades of yellow.

Here's an update. This variegated Thai Tanne has been putting out mostly white leaves. They burn in partial sun. I moved the plant to the shade and it seems happy.
