    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.

    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.

    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.
