still more broken color

So, Chuck, is it the same reactivation of inactive genes that cause the
variegated foliage? A transposon at work? The occurrence of the foliage
streaked with white is even more common in results from TBxAB than broken
color blooms. In this case of AUTUMN ECHO X KOKO KNOLL both occurred.
Unfortunately these plants aren't sturdy in my growing conditions and most
don't survive for too many seasons. Last I looked this one was still
hanging on but has never done well. Too bad since the combo of broken color
bloom with the white streaked foliage is a different stroke among the other
