    It's good to see some Goodyera on here. I can't say I've heard of this species before, though. It's very nice.

    Thank you! We have Goodyera pubescens here, and I've also been lucky enough to see Goodyera oblongifolia which grows further out west in the USA. They're such nice little plants, but not too commonly given much attention.

    Nice, in the in situ photo, are the leaves variegated? Most photos of this species on internet don't seem to have variegation.

    No, they are not variegated.
