This is an amazing species because it has a banded appearance to the leaf in which the trichomes vary in density.  Only a handful of species have banded leaves so this is definitely a rarity.  The ones I have available are young and the banding is still subtle as you can see in the pictures, the banding becomes more pronounced over time.
