In my terms stabile variegation means that once it shows the
variegation it keeps it till the plant dies.
Well I see that there are misnamings in Araceae too, but since
I'll be a horticultural engineer soon I used to it. Since we have a plant shop I
even less care about plant names, cause so many customers just buy colors, and
shapes and they really do not care about the plat's name. Even when they have
problems they never or seldom mention the botanical name of the plant, the
variety name is even rarer. Of course for myself I like to keep plant names up
to date as possible.
For Xanthosoma you can see a picture attached. I hope next
spring we'll be able to buy from a real tropical supplyer from the edible

variegated Alocasia. I'm not sure is it correctly named, the wholesaler told
that's it's name. Could it be an Alocasia wendtii form?

exactly is meant by stabilization? Do you mean, the
same pattern on
each leaf? Or do you mean the plant never
variegation? Here in Hawaii, Epipremnum aureum in
state always retains the pattern of the
cultivar 'Aureum', never reverting
to all green.
Also, by variegation, do you only mean a broken pattern,
in the aforementioned example, or do you mean any
pattern? Because as we know, there are
species in which contrasting
veins (Philodendron gloriosum)
or dots (Zantedeschia aethiopica) are the
last-named is tuberous, as are Caladiums.
