Shared with us by David Bernett in Australia years ago, we have started to propage it again. It is a form which produces new leaves that are frosted white, then to mottled milky green, which gradually fade to jade green--but realize that leaves emerging in high temperatures emerge as pale green, not white resulting in new foliage being a guacamole green in most of Texas. So: the plant displays modulating areas of color with pale new leaves contrasting with dark green mature foliage. The vine also seems to be more compact than the regular form and makes a wonderful sight clambering up a mossed pole. New leaves of ivory veined chartruse fade to deep striated green--much larger statured than `White Squamiferum' and not usually self-heading. Very rare, hard-to-locate cultivar. Get your wardian case ready for this delicate alba- it needs it!

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
