I'm very pleased with my Jose Buono. I've had my eye on one for a while and was bummed when they went out of stock. So I jumped on the opportunity to get one even if it had no or low variegation. I am happy to say a new leaf is coming in and it looks like it's going to have some nice variegation. My only gripe was the plant got very shook up during shipping. I had to repot right away because it lost soil and was listing to the side. The Jose Buono looks great otherwise.
