    This is not Punctatum. The leaves are about 8-10 inches long and about 1/2" wide.

    Ron, the one in the other post might be Cutler's.

    Excelsa is selling this as Johannis, which it is not. Ray, I can't tell from your picture if the plant has red leaves as well as yellow. Mine is all yellow and appears to match the catalog photo.

    If it is, Excelsa has dozens of them in three-gallon.

    Ricky, your plant looks more like Goldfinger. The leaves don't look long enough to be V.O.

    I do not see red petioles on Ricky's plant. Goldfinger has red petioles. Right?

    Ray - It's a very small cutting that's only been in the ground for a few months. The ones at Excelsa had leaves well over 15" long.

    Scott - No red petioles on my plant.

    It could be VO then. Remember the red petioles won't show up unless the plant gets sufficient light.
