My plant was outdoors for most of the summer and the leaves are now far more green than the "typical" pale silvery-grey-green, which they were before putting the plant outside. New leaves recently made are coming through the more typical/attractive colour. Is this linked to age of leaves or light level?
Interestingly, perhaps, a plant that was probbly field-grown, bought online as S. t. Robusta and shown as having far more white than green in the cross-banding, has made far whiter new growth in good but dappled light than the leaves as received.
Less intense light produces paler growth?
