Thank you very much for your reply Nicolas!

I dont think we have the same as mine are already taller than the plant in the photo and gaining height fast! Do you still have those or did you replace them? If you do still have them,i am just curious if they managed to flower and if their pups were any better.

I haven't replaced them, and they haven't flowered. Most of them didn't survive the freeze but a few of them did.

It will be interesting to see how they develop given some more time. Probably they will just remain dwarf like that,even when they flower and pup but who knows?

Here is an update on my Hua Moa,2 of which were producing strangely patterned leafs.

My smaller Hua Moa which was producing normal leafs,is still producing totally normal leafs(the banana on the dead center of the photo).


My bigger one which was producing leafs with lighter colored speckles,just grew a leaf with really really few speckles,almost completely free from them but not. The leaf seems a little challenged from our hot sun and latest heat wave.


My medium sized one that had the most patterned leafs keeps producing patterned leafs,and the pattern is actually getting stronger and nicer with each leaf!








I am still looking for something conclusive on what causes the patterning on the leafs and would certainly appreciate your help/thoughts/knowledge/experience!

Thank you very much in advance!

I thought i would update this thread and say that my bigger Hua Moa which had some minor speckled patterning on its leafs,has now been producing normal leafs without any patterning. My smaller Hua Moa has also stayed healthy so far and is only showing some edge yellowing after the strong winds we had been having. Here is a photo:


What causes the above yellowing?

Also,my middle size Hua Moa has kept producing patterned leafs all this time,many of them with lots of patterning on them. The older leafs are all very shredded and with the blades mostly missing from the strong winds but here is the latest leaf which unfolded in windy days but survived in good enough condition to show you the pattern:


Do you maybe know what causes patterning? So far,it doesnt seem to negatively effect the plant as it has been growing very fast all the past months,maybe even faster from my bigger Hua Moa and they are similar in size now! I would love to know the cause of the patterning though.

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

That patterning is normal variegation, probably it is a chimera. This is common from tissue cultured plants. The yellowing is normal too, sometimes the leaves get beat up and yellow, and then the plant makes new ones. All your plants look fine.

Thank you very much for your reply Gabe!

Its great to hear that its variegation! So far it has been stable and hope it shows up in some of the resulting pups! This plant is a pup from an established mat which has never shown this trait before from what i know!

I am glad everything looks fine! Thank you very much for your help Gabe!!!
