To CJ Addington and interested parties,

Perhaps you should try the reverse cross using a "chevroned" pod parent. The 
"science" can get very complicated but if aroids share the three somatic 
layers (L1, L2, and L3) that hostas and many other plants have, then 
variegated inheritance might best be accomplished this way.
