Brandon Mclane of FAN told me today this plant is a strain of wendtii mi oya, and was reproduced by tissue culture from a mutation. They have been clonning the mutation over and over for two years to get the variation constant. The coloring does vary, and in most cases he told me the leaves have several different shades of pink, mixed together. In some cases there is a little bit of white, but not enough to be called "variegated". I thought the original mi oya was also a mutation.

Developing strains from mutations is nothing new, and its not done just for color. Sunset hygrophila was developed by FAN from a mutation. E. parviflorus var tropica was a mutation.

FAN is sending me several plants this friday, and it will be available in mass production in 30 days or so. I will be selling the plants I am getting this week to any body who wants them.
