Chlorophytum experts, please
I want some pretty specific spider plant characteristics, and I'm hoping someone can tell me what varieties I'm after, and maybe a good online source.
I prefer the compact varieties to the long-leafed or "giant" varieties like variegatum (big, drooping white leaves with green edges - I always feel like it's sick).
I like the smaller "reverse variegatum," with the white edges, but I'd like to find a similar variety to it that produces lots of small, compact, curly leafed "pups" on relatively short stolons. Years ago I worked in a restaurant that had dozens of these, but I'm not sure I've seen exactly the same thing since. The parent plants didn't appear curly to me, but I think there was a bit more curl in the leaves of the pups than in many varieties. The pups were relatively small size, but had many, slightly curled leaves giving them the appearance of little pom-poms.
I'd also like to find a chlorophytum laxam, I think it's called, variation unknown. It has very wide green leaves with a white pinstripe up the center. I don't think this species produces pups.
Finally, a really "frilly" version of a curly leaf variety. I'm happy with any variegation on it as long as it's quite curled.
Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge!
