I consider the variety below to be Quirko.
There is a picture of “Turkey Foot” on the wiki (photo by Randy (Palmisland) http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/TURKEY_FOOT ,
so - what can it be? Something different from both ones...
This cultivar differs from Quirko:
- Leaves with yellow veins/ nearly without spots
- Young plants has got less angle between “fingers”
- Red stems
Thanks to Ray (Crazy for Crotons) the second one was identified as Craigii.
Below is one more oak leaf found in Thailand. It has got more delicate leaf. No ID.
Red oak leaf. Old variety. Ready to get its ID.
Sergey, that's Exiter!! I lost mine in the January 2010 freeze and have since acquired another small plant. It's a great looking plant and a good grower.
Ray, thank you very much for your help!
Ray, what is the difference between Craigii Supreme and Quirko?
Typo from Ray: Exciter - very nice Sergey!
Craigii Supreme is a large oak leaf with more rounded lobes. Overall the leaf is wider than Quirko. In short, Quirko and Craigii Supreme and very different looking. Craigii is not the same as Craigii Supreme. I'm not certain that Craigii and Quirko are not the same plant.
