Cultivar Origin:

Epipremnum aureum ‘Omelette’ began as a sport, first appearing from a single stem whose growth was the result of several generations of propagation of Epipremnum aureum ‘Teruno Bumpy’. The sport was isolated and propagated for several generations to determine the stability of the variegation. Asexual reproductions of this new cultivar by vegetative cuttings have shown the characteristics of this cultivar to be stable and true to type.

Name Origin:

Epipremnum aureum ‘Omelette’ was named in part after a cultivar of the same species called ‘Scrambled Eggs’. The name was chosen specifically because of the yolky yellow and off-white variegation and the thick, textured leaves.

Growth Habit:

Plants of this cultivar share similar growth habits to others of the species Epipremnum aureum. The rate of growth is similar to that of the cultivar ‘Marble Queen’ of the same species.

Leaf Blade:

Leaves are average in size relative to plants of the same species and ovate with a pointed top. Elongated bumps, appearing on the adaxial surface and extending alongs the veins outward from the midrib, increase in size and quantity relative to the maturity of each leaf. Yellow and white variegation appear frequently throughout the leaf blade with the jade green base color generally appearing in small patches between variegated sections.

Bloom and Fruit:

Flowering has not been observed in this cultivar.

Distinguishing Characteristics:

Plants of this cultivar are similar to Epipremnum aureum ‘Scrambled Eggs’ in the pattern and color of variation. “Omelette’ differs in that its variegation is impacted less by light levels and has an both an increased amount and vibrancy of its yellow coloring. Compared to the base cultivar ‘Teruno Bumpy’, ‘Omelette’ has shorter internode spacing, a yellow stem with white and green striations, and white to off-white marbled variegation.
