  Variegated Spath
From: Durightmm at aol.com on 2002.08.28 at 12:13:52(9308)
I found at our local Target an interesting spath. It's dark green leaves are
moderately krinkled and colored white from spots to standard variegation
designs. However, most unique is the green vaiegated spathe. Well grown in
2 gal pots and for under $7.00 it is a choice buy. Joe

Joe,

I am the manager of the Home Depot greenhouse in Pa. and every once in a
while I can order the Spath you are talking about. The price is about the
same, $7. I saw this available about a year ago from the growers in
Homestead Fl. and anything weird and different, I order, regardless if it
sells. I think the grower is either Costa, Mike Costa or First Foliage.
They do sell fast whenever I receive them. A true rare find, isn't it? Bob

Just to say that the variegated Spathiphyllum appears to be "Domino" which
is an introduction by Milestone Agriculture Florida. Unlike many variegated
Spath mutations, the white variegation is stable & does not brown. Both
leaves & spathes can be variegated.

Since I specialise only in Spathiphyllum species & cultivars I would greatly
appreciate news of anything "new" not already here in the "World
Collection"?

Sounds like Spathyphyllum 'Domino' a widely available cultivar

Dear Bob thanks for your generous offer.Ron Iles writesThe photo is of
"Domino", produced by John Carmi of Milestone Florida.
I was successful in acquiring it but perhaps others might take up your offer.
