While mucking about with my Poor Man's Dupla Drops,  I managed to get my
nana to develop variegated leaves.  I don't recall the exact circumstances,
but I seem to remember that the CO2 was off for a few days (I was using yeast,
and the outlet had become completely plugged) and I was dumping in large
amounts of Mg (it wasn't part of my mixture at the time, and I was dumping
in a 1/4tsp epsom salts daily).  Since that time my nana has been sprouting
normal leaves in abundance.  Too bad, because the variegated leaves are
really very pretty.
