    This question is proving difficult to prove or disprove.

    Are variegated plants less vigorous - grow small or not as quickly, develop problems more so than their green counterparts?

    I am looking for reference material - articles published documenting any differences.

    From what I can see... no there doesn't seem to be a general consensus. Although, I am new to this so perhaps I'm not looking in the right places - hence reaching out for help here.
