Let me venture an explanation. Some variegation are chimeral, which means
only some part of the tissue is genetically different. In variegation, the
difference is in the color, so you have patches of normal green and patches
of abnormal color, often yellow or white, side by side. The genetic
variation in chimeras usually cannot be transmitted to an offspring
sexually, however, offsets or pups can often get the same or similar
genetic variations in tissues.
