Pure White

At my house, this plant was just turn green into white leaf.



A variegated plant of Algerian ivy, Hedera helix (Family Araliaceae) can form shoots with pure white leaves, having absolutely no photosynthetic tissues. Obviously, a plant cannot survive having only white leaves, but enough photosynthesis occurs on the other shoots to maintain any nonphotosynthetic shoots. this info came from this link
