stumbled upon this today out among the multitudes of seedlings I've planted...it must have been overlooked for 2yrs by now...a real nice surprise...the odds of this are definitely  low, I've planted thousands and never had one hold the pattern for longer than a few months...


will try to get better pics later...

So that is how all variegated plants are "developed"? Planting 1000s of seeds and hoping for the best? That's a lot of respect.

thanks friend....but this isn't the only way, they get them from sports too, where a branch just decides to get funky....and they cut it off and isolate it...if i'm not mistaken...i know they do this for certain varieties, but not sure about variegated sports...i'm sure it happens...I think seed is the most common way...but also tissue culture can produce variegated specimens when done in great numbers.

Sports can occur in an isolated branch yes a bit like how many citrus and some atemoya lines been started. I have noticed when you plant lots of seedlings a few look a bit funky with colouration and you hope its a mutation that sticks if it is attractive or really different. They sometimes grow out of it or it gets less pronounced. The sabaras with striking white or yellow variegations are handsome plants.

For the frog or the plant?

Both!

Nice PS job Adam.

Seems like the way to get variegated plants is to sprout hundreds - thousands of seeds and look for the standouts.

Pongam tree in our backyard throws off massive amounts of seeds once or twice a year. Thousands of seedlings pop up in the yard. Usually get a few variegated, and sometimes one or 2 with full albinism. Seems to be a numbers game.

One plant that comes to mind regarding variegated sports is Tropical Guava, when a Guava tree gets large enough they sometimes produce a branch with variegation despite the rest of the plant being non variegated. Its then easy enough to air layer off the branch, and bam! You have a variegated Guava plant. Seen it first hand and have heard of at least one other Guava tree that has done this.
