Thank you for the kind words. This is one of my favorite plants.

Random trivia nugget, since you both mentioned colors... the name of the plant is "Quadricolor" and you may have noticed there are only really 3 colors in the picture. Mostly missing is the red hinted at by the spines, which lights up the margins under some conditions. So there you go, name explained. Smiling
