Jude, D. oerstedii and Sterling are not the same plants, visually, the variegation alone separates them. Oerstedii has a single white stripe down the midrib, Sterling has white lateral veins and I think a white midrib as well. If think Sterling's leaf is wider, but without them in front of me I can't confirm. Whether or not Sterling has oerstedii in its parentage, I dont know.

Do you not have both of these?

Hey Russ! Nice to hear from you! How you been?

Thank you for clearing this up about D. oerstedii, and D. "Sterling."

I bought cuttings of D. oerstedii on Ebay, and just bought two Sterling on an online website - so it will be good to have both. I've gotten the Dieff. bug lately for some reason. I've always liked them, but for one reason or another, they were on a back burner until now.

Do you grow any?

Best, Jude
