I note that in the photo, they are apparently growing in some rapidly 
moving water, which is not where you generally find them.  I also 
note the elongated petiole on the older leaves, suggesting they might 
have been grown in different light levels.  Still, the variegation 
suggests the possibility of a virus.   If so, hurry up and patent it 
so you can sell it as a biological control!
