What do you do about new growths not showing phenotype characteristic of the variety?

A question for the Neofinetia experts. What do you do when one of your variegated Neos produces a new growth not showing the desired phenotype? Leave it? Remove it? It depends?

Based on the number of roots down in the pot versus all the roots trying to get as far away from the pot as possible, I think it's safe to say that this plant not happy with the potting situation!...
