Spread the love


Hi everyone and welcome BACK this week for another houseplant showcase! This week we are spotlighting our favorite rare and elusive variegated houseplants. I apologize in advance for your bank account if you end up going out to buy one of these bad boys.

Starting off our #1 spot will be the..

Monstera Borsigiana Variegata

The variegated monstera, one of the most sought after variegated plants on the market right now. I was actually gifted a very juvenile yellow variegated monstera deliciosa that I’ve been raising for a little bit and I’m pretty proud of her.

Dracaena White Jewel

I stumbled upon this plant when I was planning out this post and didn’t know this existed before-hand, but nevertheless, added to the wishlist.

Heliconia Variegata

I’m kinda all for this Helicionia, it stands tall and has gorgeous striped variegated leaves.

Philodendron Florida Beauty

The Philodendron Florida Beauty has been on my wishlist since I first started collecting plants early this year, and every time I see a photo of one it re-ignites my love for them.

Philodendron Florida Ghost

This is the sister plant to the Philodendron Florida Beauty, they share a somewhat similar leaf shape but the biggest difference is that the variegation on this plant is only on new leaves it produces. Once the leaves mature they turn fully green.

Philodendron Pariaso Verde

When I first saw this plant I assumed it was the Philodendron Burle Marx, but it turns out I was way off. I kind of like the variegation on Pariaso Verde more than I like the variegated Burle Marx, the BM has more of a yellow hue to it than this one does.

Philodendron Ring of Fire Variegata

Another one of those plants that have been on my wishlist forever that I would kill for. It’s leaves shapes are so unique and the variegation is very splashed on the leaves which I’m obsessing over.

Thai Constellation Monstera

The sister plant to the Monstera Deliciosa Borsigiana. The difference between the two here is the pattern the variegation takes. This one is a lot more splattered and over the place compared to the Borsigiana where the variegation has a more consistent shape.

Variegated Alocasia Frydek

So my favorite plant I own right now is my Alocasia Frydek just because it’s been growing so well for me since I got it and was the first Alocasia I ever owned. Now imagining the same plant but with variegated velvet leaves, living for this.

Variegated Banana Tree

Rumor has it these are very hard to obtain and very expensive, and I see why. I will own the Variegated Banana Tree one day that is for sure.

Variegated Chain of Hearts

I have been wanting to get a Variegated Chain of Hearts since I found out these existed. I’m growing the normal green CoH right now and I am obsessed with how cute it is, but imagine having one that’s white and pink.

Variegated Fiddle Leaf Fig

So you thought normal FLF trees were hard to care for? Try your hand at growing a variegated version of this! I would love to have one in my home but I don’t have enough confidence that it would survive unfortunately.

If you’ve enjoyed this so far please share this to your Pinterest boards! If you liked it, so would your friends!

Variegated Monstera Adansonii

Variegated Monstera Adansonii via @elefantorat

I only very recently saw this variegation for the first time and I was a little taken back, because we all know of the normal Monstera Adansonii but when the first variegated ones made their way around instagram and pinterest, it was love at first sight.

Variegated Syngonium

They are some of the most pretty plants I’ve ever seen and I don’t know why I don’t own one yet. Soon, though.

White Fusion Calathea

I was actually about to order one of these myself until the two calatheas I currently own started falling ill and their leaves started yellowing, so until I regain my confidence with caring for calatheas I’ll have to wait on this beautiful plant.

It’s honestly a little bit of a goal of mine to start a plant YouTube channel, who would be interested in seeing vlogs for plant care, hauls, tours, etc? If you would like to see that comment below or subscribe to my channel and I’d love to give that a try!
