Hello. Two weeks ago i find one of my spath have abnormal streak on the leaf (pic no 1). It looks like a kind of mosaic virus to me (such as dasheen mosaic virus on taro plant). i discard the plant.

Later i found a nursery who sell spath with similar appearance as exotic variegate spath (pic no 2).

And yesterday i found another one that sell on another nursery (pic no 3).

Anybody recognize it ? Is it just a mineral deficiency ? Or mosaic virus ?

the 2nd pic looks very pretty - i have not seen such striped variegation before. Would be interesting to find out if it's a new cultivar.

Better to avoid if it suspected to have virus. So sad to find one of my spath show that mosaic.

i meant that the 1st pic looked like a virus, but 2nd and 3rd looked ok to me.
i liked the 2nd pic especially. i don't see any signs of virus on 2 and 3rd pix.

The second and the third looks different to common spath. But for that moment I decided not to buy them. Let see if they come around again later 😁
