Postby redcrx » Mar 02, 2013 10:28 am

Variable Sum is a dark-edged sport of 'Sum and Substance' - might be similar to Final Summation.

I have had this plant since 2010 and it is slow growing for me.
Here it is in 2012 - not showing much of it thin dark edge.

But it did have a dark green coloration on one of the leaves. This photo was cropped out of the first photo to show the detail.

Here is a different photo of that leaf. I thought the mark might just be a shadow but the second photo from a different angle shows it is leaf coloration.
