Reversions (Was: Re: Kabitan)

OK, guys..Here's your chance to share a little of that "technical
expertise." Could someone give me the low-down on reversions? Why is it
such an apparent problem with hostas? In other species (such as tropical
hibiscus, one of my other passions) production of "sports" is an
infrequent, though not rare, occurrence.

And what are the odds that a hosta sport will be stable through time? I
have a mature clump of a lovely unnamed hosta, very gold in the sun, with a
dark green edge. This year it produced a shoot with definite green
streaking on each leaf. If I separate this one, can I expect it to be
streaked again next year? And what are the odds that it will produce eyes
with that same streaking?
