I appreciate them and have a few favorites, and I like the way they offer contrasting colors.

For the most part though, I like my plants green if available.

First time I saw the variegated Brug which could be Maya or Peaches and Cream, I was blown away by the leaves. It is in here.

Thank you, Sue. I don't think Sabine is coming back. If you want to move this discussion over there, I don't object, but can't speak for the other participants. There has been a mix of houseplants & landscape plants shown/discussed.

Usually, I will select the non-variegated over the variegated, but I still have a fair number of variegated plants. They certainly are in vogue now and people are willing to pay for the variegation. Here are a few of the variegated ones I do make room for.... Several of these are garden plants, rather than "house plants".

Spider plants
Pittosporum tobira variegata
Crotons
Cordyline
a few variegated Agaves
Osmanthus heterophyllus goshiki
Aucuba japonica
Variegated pepperomia
Variegated Dwarf Schefflera
Variegated English Holly
variegated Yucca of a few different species
Japanese Forest Grass (Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola')
Hedera canariensis variegata
Aglaonema
Diffenbachia
Snake plant
Coleus
Variegated Shell Ginger
variegated Euonymus

I'm curious about variegated Spathiphyllum . Anyone here have? Shouldn't they be fairly easy?

I fully agree with all the mentions of how fickle variegation is.

Mostly pothos for me, they seem to change their minds every year, leaf by leaf. Indoor lighting, very consistent.

Spathyphillums are reliable both indoor or outdoor in protected spot, and they came in some varieties and sizes.
this one is the smallest in my garden. mature to 12cm only

These are the largest variety I grow S. 'Sensation' Variegated. They will mature to a huge size if grown in big pots or ground. leaves can attain 75cm in optimum condition. yellow and white version
