With no necrosis of the variegated spots then the leaf nematodes should thankfully be out of the equation.  Good to hear.  Still a most unusual form of variegation if genetic.  Good stuff!!  8)

Here is Geranium phaeum 'Springtime'.  I have to admit that I have mixed feelings about some variegated foliages, as to whether they look interesting or sort of unhealthy!
