Marble Queen forms. I think all of them would have same mature size leaf
if given proper light and fertilizer. The magnesium requirement is
higher on the Jade form. A trait I always attributed this to the higher
volume of green pigment per leaf in Jade as opposed to the variegated
area totally lacking pigment or containing just yellow pigment in the
