    This is ground control to Major Tom - are you floating in a most peculiar way? :confused:

    Here is the same plant a few months later. Its living under the shade of a lychee tree. I may transplant it into more sun to get more color. Anyone know the name of it? Mother-daughter? I have a few different interupted leaf forms.

    Also, as you can see it is under a carambola as well. So, it is competing with a young 'emperor' lychee above it, and then a 'kari' starfruit above it, then a live oak above that. It lives a sheltered existence!

    Dave,

    I'd say Appendiculatum but the yellow veining throws off that ID. It may be a seedling.

    Thanks. It is not a seedling. I bought it at HD. So, it has to be something! Appendiculatum sounds correct. Thanks.

    The leaf shape is Appendiculatum but that one is pure green. Yours has some yellow.
