The real Jungle Shadows is on the right. The other one looks close to bedazzled but slightly different.

Nice Julia!! Patty I agree so many pretty lost named ones! It is possible that this is an example of a seedling of Jungle shadows being sold as the actual plant! I tip my hat to you.

This is beginning to sound like a CD stuck on repeat.
Julia, You must shop at Molbecks frequently. Hilarious!
The one on the left is deffinately the one that I have. I am so glad I did not sell it to you.
I think what bothers me the most about these incorect names is that I have sold hundreds of this one over the years
Can you put me on the list for a little piece of the real thing?
The imposter is a very large beauty with an almost purple center and edging on the leaves. The rest of it is a very nice gray green. Funny thing is that Jungle Shadows is a name that really seems to fit it. It is quite stable...doesn't change color much with the seasons. I have never seen watermarks on it .... not even this year when watermarks seem to be especially noticable on the varieties that have them. It can get much bigger than Bedazzled and does not have as many babies. Of course I may not have the real Bedazzled either Hilarious! Sad
Grumbling I have 4 flats of it( the imposter). That's a lot of pots or perhaps a sale item with no name.
Thanks everyone

I am so happy to report
The mystery is solved for me at least.
My imposter is really Dark Cloud and yes I do have Jungle Shadows.
Someone here switched the tags as the tag company uses the same picture for both and it is very confusing. I suspect the same thing may have happened at Wayne's which caused Molbecks to have some Dark Cloud labled Jungle Shadows. This is another reason I should use the small white printed tags . I am also very pleased to know that I have not sold hundreds of either of these with incorrect names on them as the mix up happened very recently
Hurray!
