The arboricola is from Taiwan. There's a lot of cultivars, some of which are variegated. But there are plain green ones around, I have one. They grow easily from cuttings, so you might be able to find a trade.

Aren't they easily available in your area? We can get them here for as little as 3-10 dollars.

They are available online but theres no nurseries near me, plus I lack funds and space for plants- other things come first, mainly the kids.

Very easy from cuttings. Mine's a variegated one from a piece I took from work. If you can find a green one somewhere, Larry, see if you can beg a bit. Homebase had them last time I was there. But I don't like actually paying for pot plants. Seems like cheating somehow to purchase a fully grown healthy plant ;-) More like decorating than gardening. Mine are all from cuttings, semi corpses from the discount shelf, pass alongs or rescues. That's the part I most enjoy.

Thats usually how I get my plants Flora, cuttings taken from plants, leaves picked up off the floor at Homebase and propagated at home.
But if Im out and about and I see a cool plant in a shop I go Ooh, can I get it?
I usually then get the reply Oh, go on then!

hmm, thats too bad, you Can get tons of 3-4" pots of em here (US) quite readily for a cpl bucks,, green, variegated,, our local Walmarts drown dozens of em regularly,,,
i keep tryin to save em hehe

hmm, Bonsai,, if i even look at arboricola roots its an Epic Fail! lol
