    This could not be the case, for the leaves are not disfigured; etiolated leaves stretch for the light. These are at the ground, like the other, normal leaves.

    I have a friend who has this clone. He tried TCing it...but it always reverts back to normal. Its not a stable color.

    That's pretty neat. So, maybe it's just that it requires high light to get the white color? This reminds me of N. ventricosa [Blanco].

    I have seen this happen to an african violet I grew, but it was a weak plant. This vft looks pretty robust though.

    Isn't this one of those cultivars? I read somewhere that they sold them once upon a time. I also read that it changes back to a normal VFT just like the other cultivars pom pom and wacky traps.

    Very interesting plant! Suggest to the owner use of non-TC methods to reproduce the plant to see if the clones behave in similar fashion. This is a well grown plant.

    Looks like variegation. I am fairly certain that is a variegated specimen. The white will not survive independently from the green part (the green part is supporting it), because it contains no chlorophyll and thus cannot make its own food. Even CP's need to photosynthesize. Many types of variegation are indeed unstable.
    that makes no logic
