I managed to get some more info. on the other potted, vineing aroid I
mentioned, I even have a small cutting which I will grow. I am told that
it is brand new, not on the actual market as yet, is being produced by
"Craft Nurserys", is being called "Pothos "splash", I hear that they will
introduce it to the next big TPIE show in Ft. Laud. . I have the small
cutting in front of me, a leaf (all leaves are about the same size at this
stage in a FULL pot) is 6" X 4", and is a deeper, darker green as a basic
color, with large areas or splashes of a silver-grey color, a really
beautiful plant, the markings are much more 'random' than on the R.
cryptantha, and the petioles though short (2 1/2") are visible and not a
shingle-type plant, no pulverinus like in the common yellow-and-green
"Pothis', and with a leaf sheath almost from the base to where the blade
begins. Of course, being in tissue culture, EVERYONE will soon have it..
The texture is thick, almost like soft leather. I wonder what genus it
