These were tagged "Johannis" when I bought them a year ago. None of the leaves are interrupted & the coloring is more yellow. You can see the leaf size next to the sprinkler head. It kinda looks like a narrow leaved Eleanor Roosevelt.:confused: If not Johannis, then what?

057.jpgHi Randy, does your plant look similar to this one? i know this plant comes from Costa Rica and also i dont know the name. I had a cutting a long time ago but it never grew.
 
Randy, yours looks like Van Oosterezeii. No, I'm not joking. It's named after Jan Jacob van Oosterzee, a Dutch theologian and author. It's a more rare, slow growing plant that I got from Keith Hanks a few years ago.

Jose, yours looks like Yellow Johanna Coppinger or perhaps Yellow Golden Glow. Both are valid names. It would depend on how pronounced the midrib.
 
Ray, The one in Jose picture looks like the one Marie gave me. It has a yellow midrib, she had no name for it. sweet plant!
 
Is this one the same as Randy's plant? Looks like my Punctatum but leaves are longer.

I got a similar plant from a nursery which also had it labeled as Johannis. Dr. Brown's 1st book says that Johnannis has yellow highlights ,but all of the Johannis I've ever seen has the yellow turning into ivory. To me, this looks more like the South Pacific in Dr. Brown's 2nd book

Here is an example of Johannis with some leaf close ups of older leaves turning creamy of ivory as Perry has mentioned.

This is the closest thing I got that is comparable to Randy's plant. Don't know what it is, it came as an unknown from Mike Woolery (Bullwinkle). My plant's leaves do not appear to match the length of Randy's plant. :confused:
