Would this be the same as an "Empress hygro"? That's what my storekeeper
called the Hygro I recently bought. It resembles H. polysperma but has
prominent white veins and the new leaves are pink, and turn green over
time. The leaves on each stem go from green below to pink on top and
overall makes the plant look like light is hitting it from above.
