One of several croton trees I have...new growth comes out green then gets brilliant yellow splashes as the leaf ages and matures

Cordyline fruticosa, on left is 'Tricolor' or 'Exotica', I had both at one time (and couldn't tell the difference); the label is long gone so I don't know which it is. On right: Cordyline 'Red Sister'

I think I have that same Aglaonema! My friend gave me a piece years ago and I grew it out. I think it was called Fruit Salad or Fruit Confetti or something?

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I really enjoy them, had them for about 10-15 years up in the tundra, all containerized 4-5 months out 8-7 months in the basement.

Another croton...these have names but unfortunately I have forgotten them. This one is less common, with the predominantly white/cream variegation instead of the usual bright red/orange/yellow.

If anyone recognizes it please LMK so I can re-tag it

These are some of my favorite variegates that I grow in my yard:
Aspidistra 'Milky Way', Aspidistra 'Moon and Stars', and Aspidistra variegata. The last one is an odd little Aspidistra called "Dragon Tongue'. I'm not sure if its hardy so I keep it in the greenhouse

This used to be (and probably still is) an expensive plant and I can't figure out why because its very wide spread. I remember seeing it at the nursery in the early 2000's for $25 for a gallon. I've propogated mine by spreading clumps around in the yard in shady locales. Not paying for new starts LOL.

This is something that looks a lot like it but I can't grow it outdoors....this is the variegated version of the Sansevieria that used to be known as Mason Congo. I don't know what the current nomenclature is. I bought this for a price I will not publicly disclose, for one barefoot leaf about 10 years ago (PM me if you want to know LOL) with a good root system and grew it up. I have since divided it and have 4 containers. It is very slow growing, and the variegation is different on every leaf, some highly, some not. Very slow growing. But the leaves get about 3-3.5 feet and wide like regular Masoniana. This is the mother and a baby division
