Gageana Variegata is the showpiece of any garden it is in. There are two main color forms of the Gageana Variegata, a white form and a cream form. Our nursery raises both, and each is spectacular in its own way. The white form tends to put forth large sections of pure white, which contrasts delightfully with the dark green of the rest of the leaf. The cream form tends to not have as many large areas of cream color, but presents its variegation in small patches, hashed lines, and numerous speckles. The two forms are very similar to the color and pattern differences between a Monstera Albo and a Monstera Thai Constellation. The Variegata does best with moist, well-drained soil and part shade to shade, liking morning sun most with afternoon shade. With time, it can reach six feet, but most average at about four feet.
