This plant is not stable. Should I pull out all of the non-variegated parts? It's going to be very small if I do.

Not good. I would clip out the non-variegated as it will just take over. You friends with him on Facebook?

Yes. I was looking forward to seeing this plant this year. It is disappointing. It's all different colors and nothing like what I expected. I think I'll pull out all of the wrong colors and put them some place else. I'll root some of the variegated ones and see if I can find one that won't keep reverting. I'm just concerned that the non-variegated will keep coming back. I want the plant to look like the photos I've seen.

Hi Clint.
Chris did say if any stems reverted to just cut them out down to the crown.
I noticed that I had 3 stems that look like your reverted stems, I had not cut them out yet. Just went out to look at them after seeing your post. New leaves in the center of those reverted stems look like they are variegated.

Let us know how your replanting cutting does. I might give it a try.
