hey,
im not sure what is its full name, i bought it a week ago.
it has 4 impressive stems so it looks mature, but its leaves are a bit small and for some reason points up!
i would like it if its leaves will get bigger and be less upward as they are now so i can enjoy their nice pattern.
i read somewhere that maybe they point up because they were over exposed to the sun in the nursery, can it be?
i thought to myself that its possible that because this plant maybe was propagated from stems the leafs that are growing now look smaller compare to what you would expect from a mature plant, does it make any sense?

also, is there anyway to make the variegation look more green? maybe if ill put it in a more darker corner?

thank you!

This beautiful plant has very light green and yellow leaves with pink veins. It should be kept away from indirect light; otherwise, the colors will become less vibrant. This plant will do best in low light conditions.

The leaves will orient themselves to maximize their exposure to the light. In a greenhouse, much of the light comes from overhead. In your home, the light will come from a window on the side. In time the leaves will face more toward the light. In addition, as leaves age, they will be pulled down more by gravity. Be patient and the plant will take care of itself.

As plants mature and grow larger, their leaves will as well.

Lower light will lead to less color and more green.
