    Phil,

    The plant you and I have is Pitcarin Sport. The Blotched cultivar is the original in this case.

    Jose,

    I'm pretty sure they don't call it Quirko in CR. This name was passed along to me by Keith Hanks. He might be able to tell us where the name originated.

    Nice cultivar...where can I find this plant in Costa Rica. I'll go anywhere (almost) in CR to obtain one!
