I am just a little sad..my Pel crispum Prince Rupert is losing its variegation, the new growth are all solid green. Same is happening to Kalanchoe marmorata.. Rolling my eyes.

Awww, sorry, Tarev. More light? Can you remove the plain parts?

Nope, cannot remove the plain parts..because they are no longer just parts, totally new plants starting from the roots.. Rolling my eyes. and they are getting more light already..I do not know what triggered the reversion. Still curly leaves though and when it makes blooms same looking flowers..so I guess it just happens with Pel crispum Prince Rupert. Hmmm.. unless it wants to go in shade? Have not done that..

Can you take cuttings of the variegated parts to perserve it?
