    My plant finally started to color up a bit on the newer growth. Will need to add a new picture. Still looks mostly like Lucha with a bit of the Eburnium appearance on the new leaves. I remember others mentioning this a while back. Very slow growing, I would assume due to the lack of chlorophyll.

    Anna this is an earlier post from Jeff, this needs to be part of the discussion. I don't think my plant is Lucha. It seems to be a thin version of Eburnium.

    Here is an updated photo of my Lucha. It started to show a bit more color but the newest flush of growth is looking like the original plant. David had a couple of nice examples.
