The yellow form will revert to all-green, and back. I always believed this had to do with the amount of light the plant was recieving: it tends to revert to green in dim conditions, and back to yellow-variegated in bright conditions (each leaf is set -- an all-green leaf will stay green, a variegated leaf stay variegated, even when the light conditions change; it is on NEW growth that reversion occurs). I have observed the same thing in a different plant family: the variegated cvv. of Tradescantia/Zebrina.
