Its a fantastic croton -so big and colourful. I have the same one but mine is very small in comparison. However I’m pleased i haven’t killed mine yet as I did kill the first two!

This is a beautiful croton. My husband rescued a plant from the neighbors garbage that had a fern, a Mande villa and a croton all in one pot. The mandelvilla has not really grown much-the fern and the croton are thriving in their rescue home.

Mine did this last year. Surprised me. Didn’t know they did that. Mine is a little leafless right now but it does have a lot of new leaves starting again

Dainty but pretty flowers. I’ll probably never see flowers on mine as they usually don’t live long enough😬

@cowdenkyle it's like the opposite of a begonia, which start out with sharp, clear colors then fade as the leaves mature...These seem to start out a little bland and then mature into much brighter colors
