Another thing illustrated well in the photo (great photo) shows the heavy if not pure I. variegata ancestry of 'Gracchus'.  The spathes are very typical for I. variegata and show no influence from I. pallida.  The hybrids that have a large amount of I. pallida in their ancestry have usually smaller and partly (sometimes almost entirely) membranous to papery spathes with the green color lacking in the parts that aren't foliaceous.
